Councillor Pimpermann buys a little gold heart from a jeweller's shop for his wife and he boasts about his gift in the office. However, he doesn't notice that the little heart has fallen on the floor and he looks in vain for it at home. He sends his servant to have a look round the office. Meanwhile the heart has been found by the clerk Petrina. Pimperman confides in his daughter Babinka about the loss who goes to the jeweller's to buy another gold heart. The servant returns empty-handed and the councillor goes off to search for it himself. For a small bribe, the wife finds out where and why her husband has left the house and she goes off to the shop to buy yet another one. Then the clerk arrives bearing the original lost heart. The councillor's wife catches him in an embrace with Babinka. When the councillor returns his wife gives him the little heart she had bought saying that she had found it in the hall. The wife then receives a second heart from Babinka and a third one from the clerk. The film ends with the happy embrace of three couples: the councillor and his wife, the clerk and Babinka and the servant and the chamber-maid Mina.
