Landowner Zaren, his daughter Eva and her betrothed Frank Solar find themselves at the house of Petr Horyna high up in the mountains. Eva catches pneumonia and the only available medicament is ice. Horyna undergoes a dangerous journey but he brings back the necessary ice; he saves Eva's life but also finds that he has fallen in love with her. Just before her marriage to Solar, Eva finds out about his alcoholism and instead marries Horyna. Solar, however, with the help of his friends, convinces her that her union is not equal. Eva leaves Horyna and goes back to Solar. Her brother Jiri catches sight of Solar with his lover Lola and Eva, too, sees Solar's deceit for herself. She tries to commit suicide but in the end she goes back to the mountains to Horyna who is the one who really loves her.
