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.

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)
