An autobiographical horror story about a fruit merchant whose heart is literally broken by a cold, vindictive family comprised of mostly of castrating women. As a cop, Hans succumbs to a prostitute's wiles; then, demoted to the proletarian job of selling wares on the street, he's no longer suitable for the women he loves and ends up with icy Irmgard.
