Alois Novák, a minor clerk in a travel agency and the husband of a dowdy housewife, lives a run-of-the-mill, dull life. In his soul, however, there resides an inextinguishable desire for adventure. And so once a month he poses as a playboy. As the mysterious and wealthy Mr. Kristian he goes to the exclusive Orient Bar where he does not skimp on generous tips and where he platonically seduces beautiful and elegant women. In the salon he speaks of love and the magnificence of exotic lands, which he has supposedly come to know on his wanderings abroad. In reality he has read all of this in the travel agency's brochures. The women succumb to the enchantment of his velvety voice and on his request obediently close their eyes. Kristian then hurriedly and alone leaves the bar, that after another month he may repeat his game with another woman. He leads this double life till the time he meets the intelligent Zuzana in the bar. Zuzana scrutinizes his dealings and returns Kristian to his real life at the side of his faithful wife Mařenka, who under the direction of her aunt has been transformed into an elegant, modern woman.
