One evening, Robert Krohn, a sports journalist, meets the former movie star Veronika Voss. Intrigued by her behaviour, Robert will go on seeing her. Veronika has become a drug addict who's unable to accept that she's no more the star she was ten years before. Robert will also discover that Veronika's psychiatrist, the doctor Katz, is giving her morphine on a daily basis and, systematically, dispossesses Veronika from her last goods.
