Synopsis

"A poor girl becomes the lover of a rogue who, although a waiter in a night club, pretends to be a Russian count. The girl then also falls into the clutches of his partner. All three of them persuade a young husband to poison his father. He almost commits the crime but comes to his senses at the last minute. After many escapades both rogues find themselves in the hands of justice and there is nothing left for the girl but to walk the streets..." (Quotation from a press release from the time the film was made).
