Inhalt

Harlis

Harlis and Pera are night-club dancers in a club for "ladies", and very good friends - in fact they are having a love affair with each other. One of the few male customers, a man named Raymond, falls in love with one of the girls, Harlis.

As she returns his affections, she runs into difficulties with her girl- friend Pera, who cannot accept the fact that Harlis could ever fall for a man. Pera insists that Harlis choose between them. Harlis chooses Raymond, initially because she finds the adventure tempting, but later because she really likes him.
Raymond, however, has another girl, Ria, and their liaison is commercial as well as affectionate. Ria is a wealthy shop owner. Raymond breaks off with her and with his financially dependent brother Prado as well. Prado decides to avenge himself on Harlis. This changes nothing between Harlis and Raymond, but Raymond is nonetheless unable to acquaint Harlis with the customary female role. Despite her love for him, she longs to go back to Pera.
At the end, the two cast-offs, Ria and Prado, come together, and not just because of disappointment. Their marriage ends with a murder on their wedding night, while the relationship of Raymond to the two girl dancers reaches its high point in a remarkable and totally involuntary stage appearance by all three.
