At a party, Frede meets the popular actress Edith, with whom he falls head over heels in love. One day, he’s in the theatre to see her perform, he overhears a conversation which shows her in a new and bad light.

The role of Frede is played by Valdemar Psilander, who was Nordisk Film’s biggest star until his death in 1917.
