About

Lulu is a young woman so beautiful and alluring that few can resist her siren charms. The men drawn into her web include respectable newspaper publisher Dr. Ludwig Schön, his musical producer son Alwa, circus performer Rodrigo Quast and Lulu's seedy old friend, Schigolch. When Lulu's charms inevitably lead to tragedy, the downward spiral encompasses them all.
