"Carsten Curator" owes its title to the numerous wardships entrusted to its main character. The one impulsive action in Carsten's life has been his marriage to the frivolous but attractive Juliane whose character is inherited by her son, Heinrich. She dies at his birth, and the boy is brought up by Carsten and his sister, Brigitte, together with Anna, an orphaned distant cousin who is as steady as Heinrich unstable. As a young man Heinrich is a constant drain on his father; losing one job after another either by imprudence or dishonesty. Anna, although she has once refused him, marries him to put her small fortune at his disposal to buy a business in a last desperate attempt to save him. At first Heinrich is prudent and honest, but drink and fickleness ruin him. On the night of a terrible storm he comes to ask Carsten to save him from bankruptcy. When Carsten refuses, Heinrich, the worse for drink, launches out in a small boat into the rising floods, is carried away by the swift water and drowned.
