Der Komponist Peter Paul Müller versucht im Berlin der Jahrhundertwende Fuß zu fassen. Seine Frau Lisbeth unterstützt ihn dabei. Mit einem befreundeten Dichter schreibt er die Operette "Wie einst im Mai" und landet einen Überraschungshit. Er bringt es bis zum Theaterleiter, doch mit dem beruflichen Aufstieg beginnt es in der Liebe zu kriseln. Durch Müllers Liaison mit einer Sängerin zerbricht seine Ehe. Sein Teilhaber Gesenius lässt ihn aufgrund der Affäre fallen, und nun droht auch dem Theater der Niedergang.  

The composer Peter Paul Muller is attempting to make a namer for himself in Berlin at the turn of the 19th into the 20th Century.  His wife Lisbeth supports his attempts.  He soon writes an operetta with a poet-friend of his entitled “Wie einst im Mai” and ends up with a surprisingly huge success.  He soon manages to become the director of a theatre, but with his professional ascent, his personal life soon comes into a crisis.  His liaison with a singer destroys his marriage.  His partner Gesenius abandons him because of this affair; and now, the theatre seems about to close.
