A high-class prostitute funds an invention by Walter, her friend from childhood. For this reason, she is strangled to death by Ludwig, her pimp. Suspected of the crime, Walter is taken to prison. Only the confession made by Martha, another demimonde, brings light to the affair. Walter is set free and Martha dies from a bullet fired by Ludwig. Apart from the melodramatic story, the film is striking by the subtle play of the cast, a sophisticated lighting scheme and convincing scenography.
