This early nudie-film, showing two naked women lolling around a rocky landscape, is more quaint than erotic. It's not clear what the original purpose was - it appears to be an excerpt from a longer film, and the peculiar title, in combination with the occasional mild nuzzling of the protagonists, suggests some kind of cautionary film about lesbianism. For our purposes, these gentle images of two naked women (one thin, and the other, well, Rubenesque), crossing a meadow picking flowers, climbing...

This is a warning about the path of casual drug usage leading to "the point of no return" and the user being permanently lost to society.
