Film on a young soldier's daily life in the army and his daydreams, which merge with reality throughout the film. Berger dreams of a knight entering a ravaged castle with two surviving women. One squirts him with breast milk, and Berger runs the other one through with his lance. Images of his dream reappear through the film, in which he undergoes an unexceptional training and soulless search for weekend sex.
