Plot – Initially successful, a young writer finds serious difficulties on his path and turns to alcohol to escape his torments. He becomes an alcoholic, and his brother's and his girlfriend's efforts to tear him away from his vice are useless. The wretch has only one concern: to obtain the money he needs to satisfy his unquenchable thirst. He falls into a condition of extreme abjection. Taken to a clinic for alcoholics, he witnesses dismal scenes of delirium tremens and he himself becomes delirious. Desperate, he decides to commit suicide and he is about to do so when his girlfriend's intervention saves him. Love has performed a miracle and, thanks to his love for the heroic creature that has saved him, he finds the strength to resist temptation and to heal.
