Young Eva finds her newly-married life to an older doctor disappointing. When she decides to leave her husband, she meets young and handsome Adam, whom she quickly falls for. Lamarr’s (then Hedwig Kiesler) first major role, as a modern and liberated woman following her desires, caused controversy when the film was first released and brought her to the world’s attention.
