In 1921 in an alley called Melchiorgasse in the poor part of Vienna, Austria, there are only two wealthy people: the butcher Josef Geiringer and Mrs. Greifer, who runs a fashion boutique and a nightclub, patronized by wealthy Viennese. Annexed to the nightclub is Merkl Hotel, a brothel to which the women of the nightclub bring their clients. The film follows the lives of two women from the same poor neighborhood, as they try to better themselves during the period of Austrian postwar hyperinflation. They are Marie, a streetwalker with a cruel and abusive father, and Grete, who at the last moment, is saved from this fate.

"3.11. Työttömyydestä kertovan double billin jälkimmäinen elokuva oli vähän ylipitkä, mutta muuten viimeisen päälle tyylitelty ja aikaansa nähden edistyksellisiä tekniikoita hyödyntävä kuvaus työttömän naisen selviytymistaistelusta. Rikkaat tarjoavat jonkinlaisen selviytymiskeinon itseään myyville naisille, mutta tottakai nainen on kamala olento jos hän ei ole siveellinen, vaikka samaan aikaan tuollaista naista tuomitsevat miehet haluaisivat vain päästä syvälle pöksyjen"
