Historical drama set in the 1950s. Story is based on real-life events. Rosemarie Nitribitt comes out of a remand center, runs away from her foster parents and ends up working as a barmaid in a Frankfurt nightclub. A wealthy French businessman offers to set her up in return for tape-recordings of her sex sessions with German VIPs.

A piece of German post-war history
The film is based on a true story. The film does not show how the story ended, but Rosemarie Nitribitt was murdered in 1957. The killer was never identified, and there were theories of a cover-up in highest places.
The film itself captures the atmosphere of post-war Germany, materialistic, repressive, hypocritical, conservative. The sensitive use of camera and lighting manages to capture the contrast between an extreme Technicolor effect in some scenes and the gloomy street scenes in others. Heiner Lauterbach is the wealthy businessman who falls for the streetwise Rosemarie played by Nina Hoss, Til Schweiger plays the pimp Nadler.
