Paris, late 19th century. Madeleine leads a double life. She is married to an upright, honourable bank clerk, a model husband who hardly knows his wife. The young composer Michael falls in love with Madeleine; he gives her a valuable pearl necklace because she inspired his "Romanze in Moll". She tells her husband the pearls are only a cheap imitation. While her husband is away, Madeleine and Michael visit the latter's brother; the rich playboy Viktor falls in love with the woman and leaves no stone unturned in his efforts to make her his.

When this strategy also proves unfruitful, he tries to blackmail her with his knowledge of her liaison with Michael.
