The perceptive boy has undisturbed dreams and ideas about life. He is finding it difficult to bear the narrow-mindedness and hypocrisy of the adults' world and often faces a lack of understanding and anger. He burns with pure love for "crazy" Anička but she only plays with him. He is taken by the mature beauty of Helena from the travelling theatrical company and he lets himself be seduced by the embittered widow Haurová.
