Children are listening to the legend of the golden flower and the Knights of Blanik; afterwards Stana and Jirka go off to look for the flower. Their mother is worried about them and one of the musicians at the inn, a double bass player, goes off to find them. The greedy tramp Ferda who had been thrown out of the pub by the young lads, is also making for the woods. Stana and Jirka have to avoid all sorts of traps laid by supernatural beings. The queen Lada appears before them and gives them three magical gifts. These will help them overcome evil magic. Ferda is rewarded for his greed and is not given anything but he runs back to the village to tell of the treasure he has seen. The children find the golden flower which is the key to the treasure. The avaricious villagers follow the children who, with the help of the bass player, find their way to Blanik. With the aid of the golden flower the mountain opens up for them. Great grandfather Cech, Lada and good elves appear before them and the knights march out of the mountain in all their splendour.
