Paula Henning is a very gifted medicine student who's got the opportunity to take summer anatomy lessons of the famous Professor Grombek at the Heidelberg university in Germany. She fortuitously finds out about the activities of an antihippocratic secret society of students and schoolmasters who are carrying out wild experiments on the corpses. Hein, a young member of this society, likes to practice dissection on living subjects and will murder Gretchen, Paula's friend, who's cheated on him, in this way. Hein is expelled from the society, goes on with his experiments and is now after Paula who has decided to go to the police.
