Synopsis

Lilo, a high-priced call girl, attends a party given by a group of students, and at their behest, she seduces Hans, an innocent young man. Now experienced, Hans enters a liaison with Brigitte, the wife of his respectable professor. The professor gets drunk while on a trip to Frankfurt and spends the night with Claudia, a secretary. Claudia has a brief encounter with her boss, who then returns to his ex-wife. The ex-wife in turn takes up with an impoverished student, and the student becomes attracted to Françoise, a French general's daughter. Françoise falls for Octaviano, a talented singer working as a waiter in a hotel. A famous actress, impressed by the waiter's talent and good looks, gets him a part in her movie. After the shooting, the actress leaves by train and is invited by a diplomat to share his sleeping compartment. The diplomat is met the next day by an older woman who has been helping him with his career, and when they part, the diplomat meets and makes a date with Lilo.
