A young English couple on vacation in Venice, Mary and Colin, have come to Venice to work on their troubled relationship. They soon meet Robert, the enigmatic owner of a picturesque bar. Later, drunk and lost in the maze-like city, the couple once again encounter Robert, who puts them up at his gorgeous villa. They also meet his wife, Caroline, who suffers from obvious emotional instability. Fascinated by the glamorous older couple but disturbed by their dysfunctions, Colin and Mary find themselves slowly drawn into sexual and emotional games that culminate in sudden violence.
