Franz Woyzeck is a simple soldier who does everything he can to support and feed his Marie and their illegitimate child. He is only insulted and exploited by his captain. In order to improve the financial situation, he makes himself available for an experiment in which he is not allowed to eat anything other than peas. Marie, on the other hand, encounters a drum major with whom she cheats on Woyzeck.
