Polykarp flirts with a girl on the tram and his hat flies off in the wind. He runs off after it and he meets Mimi. He walks with her through the snowy city streets. He arranges to meet her at three o'clock. After Mimi has left Polykarp, Jarda runs up to the girl, his fiancee, and persuades her to go tobogganing with him in the afternoon. Polykarp waits impatiently for Mimi. Her fiance sends him a letter of apology from her. The boys who bring the letter, urge Polykarp to take them tobogganing as well. Shots of skiers and tobogganers on Petrin hill. Polykarp goes down on the toboggan and meets the perfidious Mimi. Her fiance starts a fight with him and they roll down the hill together - and, in the end, Polykarp finds himself alone.
