A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS is an experimental fiction/documentary hybrid that follows a nameless man across three contrasting Scandinavian environments.

Sex

There are some strong sex references between two men who are talking at a commune. One refers repeatedly to an experience in which 'everybody had somebody's finger in someone else's asshole'. He tries to describe to the other man the strangeness of this experience with his fellow commune members.

There is natural full frontal and rear nudity as men and women relax together and take in a sauna. There is also some smoking of a cigarette by a man who goes on a boat. It isn't clear whether it is tobacco smoking or drug use.
