The film approaches the legendary, historical figure from the point of view of Countess Irma, who is appointed Empress Elisabeth's lady-in-waiting. Irma is immediately fascinated by the impressive but also self-destructive Sisi. She falls further and further under her spell, falls madly in love with the free and untamed empress and finally supports her in a momentous decision.
