Crime drama based loosely on the novel by Theodor Fontane:  The young innkeeper Raschek can't resist granting his beautiful wife Hilda any wish she expresses --- with the consequence that he's financially in way over his head.  His most stubborn supporter is Kampmann, a man with few scruples and who has an eye on Raschek's wife.  After Kampmann wins at cards at Raschek's inn, there's a big fight after he hits up on Hilda.  A little bit later, Kampmann is found murdered and suspicion is directed at Raschek.
 
Kriminalfilm nach Theodor Fontane: Der junge Gastwirt Raschek kann seiner hübschen Frau Hilda keinen Wunsch abschlagen – mit der Folge, dass er sich finanziell übernimmt. Sein hartnäckigster Gläubiger ist der skrupellose Kampmann, der zudem ein Auge auf Rascheks Frau geworfen hat. Nachdem Kampmann bei einem Kartenspiel Rascheks Gasthof gewonnen hat, kommt es zu einem heftigen Streit, als er Hilda bedrängt. Wenig später wird Kampmann ermordet aufgefunden. Der Verdacht fällt auf Raschek.
