Ina Kahr's Confession

Ina Kahr, sentenced to death for poisoning her husband Paul, the owner of an advertising agency, looks back upon her life. After a sort, happy period of married life, a rival appears unexpectedly and pleads with Ina to release Paul. For Ina the scene is a deja vu: she once pleaded with Paul's first wife, using almost the exact same words. Upon hearing this, the other woman decided to break up with the unstable and fickle man. Paul reacts by disowning Ina, and begins to lose his will to live. In a double suicide attempt he dies, while Ina is accidentally saved. Mitigating circumstances are all she can hope for now.
