Pohlmann (Udo Kier) is a young racketeer who falls for a stripper named Annabelle (Maria Paal). The two have a passionate affair before she is found murdered. The girl's father accepts his offer to track down the killer, and Pohlmann narrows his focus on two people. One is a homosexual actor who Annabelle had once made a move towards. The second suspect is Kowalski, the mob boss. Pohlmann tortures the actor, who refuses to admit guilt and is soon driven to suicide by hanging. After Pohlmann discovers it was the father who killed his own daughter, the father is killed in a bar bombing. Kowalski is livid over being suspected and proceeds to wipe out Pohlmann's gang of thugs. The body count continues to climb in this violent and sex-riddled crime drama.
