In this beautifully restored version of director F.W. Murnau's classic film based on the popular newspaper serial by Gerhart Hauptmann, Alfred Abel stars as Lorenz Lubota, a would-be poet doomed by ambition and class. When Lorenz is hit by a carriage, he becomes obsessed with its passenger -- the daughter of one of the city's wealthiest families. But he can't have her and instead attempts to woo her evil look-alike, a prostitute named Mellitta.
