It is 1900 Vienna. The young, incurably romantic - and indecisively neurotic - Anatol pursues each woman as if she is "the one," without commitment or care. With Anatol's eye ever-wandering, his psychologist friend Max tries to counsel his incorrigible friend. Though Anatol demands absolute loyalty in his lovers, it is not the same yardstick he holds up for himself. As the narcissistic Anatol woos a succession of seven different women, we learn what Anatol knows - and does not know - about women, while revealing all about himself.
