Letzte Liebe (Last Love) is a vehicle for Japanese-born singing favorite Mitchiko Meini, whose marriage to a wealthy Austrian coffee importer secured her a place in the European film industry. Meini is cast as a Japanese music student, taking lessons in Vienna. An elderly, dissipated composer (Albert Basserman), now down on his luck, takes a fancy to the girl and composes an opera for her. The old man hopes that her gratitude will eventually blossom into love, but she falls instead for his younger, handsomer nephew (Hans Jaray). The tear-stained conclusion finds the heroine ascending to stardom overnight, but just as quickly retiring from the limelight, saddened beyond words by the tragic and unnecessary death of her aged mentor
