Young Pamela (Heidemarie Hatheyer) is a painter and moves to Munich to make some money there. Soon she meets the great artist Andreas Alwin (Mathias Wieman), who promotes her. Eventually they fall in love with each other. Pamela overestimates her artistic quality and while failing with an order for a painting, the two break up. After a while she meets a young admirer, but when she is suspected of a counterfeit of a picture, he drops her like a hot stone. Being refined, she goes back to Andreas.
