Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property. A well-meaning sportswriter tries to save Veronika from herself, sacrificing his own personal happiness - and the life of his girlfriend Cornelia Froeboess - in the process. Allegedly an amalgam of several true stories, Veronika Voss is the second of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy" (the others are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola)
