Das Brennende Herz (The Burning Heart) is motivated by the romance between young composer Georg Wittig (Gustav Froelich) and aspiring singer Dorothy Claudius (Mady Christians). Before their first meeting, hero and heroine have their own individual crosses to bear: Georg is saddled with an alcoholic mother, while Dorothy's father is a helpless invalid. On the eve of Dorothy's first singing job, her father dies, and in her grief she turns to Georg for comfort. Their chance meeting blossoms into love, but the drunken rages of Georg's mother put a nearly impossible strain upon the relationship. And just when it seems that things can't get any worse, Dorothy is seriously injured in a traffic accident. Amazingly, there's a happy ending, but by that time the audience has gone through as much of an emotional wringer as the characters on screen.
