The story takes place around 1900 and involves a young girl, a brothel, and a hidden treasure.

Typical for Danish hardcore sex comedies of the 1970s, the production was not blocked from hiring people from the mainstream film industry. The crew included cinematographer Morten Arnfred, also known as co-director of the TV miniseries The Kingdom (1994). The cast includes comedian Gotha Andersen, a popular mainstream film and television actor, and popular singer Inger-Lise Gaarde.

The film started a decade-long run of Danish hardcore sex comedies.



At the film's release party, Danish millionaire Simon Spies showed up, took off his clothes and started having sex with members of the film's female cast in front of the press. The resulting photos naturally made front page news and are still reprinted frequently.[1]
