"The setting is Berlin in the late 1920s: 'An unprepossessing sullen little cafe... a lady in a moleskin coat... a young man in tortoise-shell glasses, sipping cherry brandy and gazing into each other's eyes.' — The lady in the fur coat is Martha Dreyer. The myopic young man is Franz, her bumbling lover and her husband's nephew. Her husband, oblivious to their meeting, plods on with his money-making schemes. Martha, 'strictly adhering to every rule of adultery,' is clumsily plotting her husband's murder so that she and Franz may live happily ever after on his money."
