A married bureaucrat and a single mother of two meet and fall in love.

Paul is unhappily married to a beautiful woman who cheats on him. Paula, who has two children from different fathers, is in a relationship of convenience with a tire salesman. When Paula and Paul meet in a bar, they fall in love. Yet, Paul, who can never make up his mind, almost loses Paula, who blames herself when her child dies in an accident. Finally, Paul wins Paula back and their love becomes a legend in the neighborhood, intensified by a tragic twist.

DE, 1972, Colour, 106 min., Rated M, Dir. Heiner Carow
