The dancer Lulu persuades Newspaper mogul Dr. Schön to marry her, but the wedding night ends fatally: Lulu shoots him. She flees to Paris, where she ends up in the hands of a blackmailer. She has to flee again, this time to London. Lulu is forced to walk the streets and meets her final customer – Jack the Ripper. “Krampf paints his images”, wrote the magazine Film-Kurier at that time.
