Werther aime d'un amour profond Charlotte, la fiancée de son ami Albert ; voulant trouver l'oubli, il s'enfuit. Cependant, sa passion le ramène irrésistiblement près de Charlotte et, bien que celle-ci, pendant son absence, ait épousé Albert, il n'en rentre pas moins en rapport suivis avec elle. Troublée et vaincue, la jeune femme se jette un jour dans ses bras. Mais aussitôt, furieuse et repentante, elle lui défend sa porte. 

Werther is profoundly in love with Charlotte, who's engaged to his friend Albert.  Searching for oblivion, he flees.  But his passion irresistibly brings him back to be near Charlotte only to discover that, during his absence, she's married Albert.  This, however, does not stop him from stalking her; and once day, she throws herself into his arms.  Almost immediately, however, she regrets her actions and furiously defends her marriage.
