Paris, 1850. A party takes place in the house of the courtesan Violetta, who is suffering from tuberculosis.

She is introduced to an admirer, Alfredo. After the guests leave Alfredo urges Violetta to abandon her life style and offers his love. After battling with her feelings and uncertainty about love she decides to leave all behind and live with him on a country side house.

Germont, Alfredo’s father, goes to Violetta’s house and pleads her to leave his son Alfredo. The scandal of their relationship is threatening the success of his daughter’s wedding. She loves alfredo but agrees, leaving a note of farewell. Alfredo is distraught but confronts her about their relationship and love.

Violetta has vowed not to say the reason for her to leave him. Filled with anger he hurls a fistful of money at her making the most outrageous act of humiliation to a women.

A period of short time has passed and Violetta is now on her last few hours of life. She receives a letter from Alfredo’s father in which he confesses to having told his son of her sacrifice.

Alfredo arrives at her house and begs for her forgiveness. They talk of their future happiness together, but she is clearly beyond recovery. She rises briefly to her feet, then falls dead.
