A clear case of abuse. In Paris, an unscrupulous lawyer uses his beautiful wife (Ellen Richter) to further his own career. When he is killed under mysterious circumstances, the wife is accused. After she is acquitted, she starts a one-woman search to find the real culprit in the Parisian underworld. Initially a victim of male power games, Ellen Richter's character develops into a detective with a talent for disguise, who reinvents herself out of necessity. (Philipp Stiasny/Oliver Hanley)
