The last part of the Fassbinder’s post-war trilogy (the first two are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola) is an amalgam of a few stories from real life. Veronika Voss is an actress who was supposedly Gobles’ lover. Now when the things stop going well for her, she becomes addicted to morpheme and the doctor’s only concern is to take all the money from her. The only person willing to help is a sports journalist Robert Krohn, even at the cost of losing a girlfriend.
