Zdenka, the daughter of the banker Urban, and her friend Mana, make the acquaintance of the nephew of factory owner, Jaroslav Klement and the workman Vladimir Skala. On Sunday they all go to the fair. Mana is not aware that Jaroslav is a wealthy man while Vladimir knows that Zdenka comes from a rich family and this causes him much concern. A party in the Urban's house is broken up by Zdenka's mother who orders her daughter's friends out of the house. Zdenka admits that she loves Vladimir, but her mother will hear nothing of it. A companion of Mrs Urban, Ema, is chatting in the bar to a man who claims to be a baron. She ends up at the police station where she is rescued by Mana's brother Vaclav. For this service, Vaclav is rewarded with her favour. Jaroslav is to take over the factory and get married to a suitable wife. The wedding takes place in the simple flat of Mana's parents. From here Jaroslav takes his guests to his villa. It is only now that he can ask the Urbans for Zdenka's hand in marriage for his friend Vladimir who is now to become his partner.
