The difficulties of the postwar period are reflected in twenty-year-old Erika's face. Although her good friend Walter is in love with her, he cannot offer her the pleasure and diversion she longs for. She tries to enjoy life through relationships with men, who pamper her with stockings and candies, but these temptations become her undoing when a health check reveals that she has contracted a sexually transmitted disease. Will Walter continue to support her even through this difficult situation?
