The Devil in the Sauna

The folklorist husband cannot put up with the fact that his TV reporter wife does not love him as much as before. Being tortured by passion and accusations, the husband takes his wife to sauna in order to cleanse the spirit as well as ignite the body chemistry. The primeval atmosphere of the sauna has quite the opposite effect on the woman and the situation goes out of control.
