Lovers Rudolph and Marie, seeing no future together, tacitly agree that suicide is their only option. Rudolph agrees to implement the plan when Marie is unaware. While she still sleeps he shoots her in the head with a revolver off camera, leaving her with only a trickle of blood on her forehead, then he turns the gun on himself. We see only that he reaches for her hand which then falls limp, ending the film.
