Die Blumenfrau von Lindeau (The Flower Seller of Lindeau) takes place in a sleepy provincial German community. An impoverished widow, unable to pay the taxes on her pet dog, falls victim to the insensitivities of a local politician. Apprised of the situation, a crusading newspaperman champions the old woman's cause, threatening the politician's campaign for the burgomeister's post. Our hero also falls in love with the bureaucrat's daughter, thereby placing himself in a sticky conflict-of-interest dilemma. Based on a play by Bruno Frank, Die Blumenfrau von Lindeau was remade in 1937 as the British social comedy Storm in a Teacup.
