Leander pleads guilty to a crime which her spineless lover committed and ends up in the Paramatta Penitentiary in Australia. When her lover realizes that she's been transported, he moves to Australia and makes an unsuccessful attempt to contact her. Instead, he marries the daughter of the

governor, while Leander marries respectable settler Staal and thereby gets out of prison. She is saddened to learn that her former paramour has found someone else so she runs off and tries to start anew as a nightclub singer. Ultimately, she returns voluntarily to the prison, but her selfless

husband again retrieves her. One of Detlef Sierck's final German films before coming to America and changing his name to Douglas Sirk. Interesting as a precursor of the brilliant melodramas which were to come later.
