Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property.

Fassbinders radikales, satirisches Künstlerporträt innerhalb des bürgerlichen Kulturbetriebs, das gleichzeitig deutliche autobiografische Züge aufweist.
