Synopsis: An Asiatic Professor travels west across Europe performing a marionette show. The tragic tale of Lady Purple; orphan, murderer of her foster parents, prostitute. As the years have gone by he has grown evermore frail, but the puppet's movements have grow more fluid. She finally becomes real, feeding on his blood and burning the body she leaves to find a brothel, for she can only be what he has made her. (Wikipedia)
