Franz, an unemployed showman and hooker, wins the lottery. Antique dealer Max introduces him to a group of elegant homosexuals. He falls in love with Eugen, the son of an entrepreneur. The two move in together. Franz pays the rent of the extravagant apartment and Franz puts the quasi bankrupt firm of Eugen’s family back on an even keel. However, their class difference remains insurmountable. Eugen’s financial exploitation of Franz is continuous; the latter loses his share in the firm and finally even his apartment. The two split up. Eugen returns to his old lover. Franz commits suicide.
