The elderly wealthy Kwiatowski spends his evenings in the bar where he worships the beautiful Manon. She, however, has fallen in love with the naive Mario, an occasional visitor to the bar who impresses Manon with his refined behaviour. She marries him but soon she is bored by domestic life. She begins to frequent the bar once more where Kwiatkowski showers attention on her. Mario discovers that the money Manon has is not from her rich aunt in Lvov, as Manon had claimed. The aunt comes unexpectedly to visit Manon's husband and Mario sees that she is very poor. Manon, after a struggle with her conscience, decides to break from the past and she leaves the bar forever. But it is too late. Mario had, in the past, tried to acquire money through embezzlement and now he had been discovered. The young man shoots himself in his despair.
