Synopsis

Jindra and her cousin Amálka return from Vienna to her father's estate. Both girls are welcomed not only by the family but also by Vojtěch Lípa, the patriotic tutor of Jindra's two younger brothers. At first Jindra scoffs Lípa and his fervour for the national cause but she gradually begins to understand his views. The young couple fall in love however the fate has decided otherwise: Jindra's father estate is destroyed by fire and Jindra, to save her family from poverty, marries the rich count Ostrovín. She is not happy with him, and grief and anxiety cause her untimely death. As a last wish she asks her father to take her little son to Lípa so that he can bring him up to be a fine patriot. (According to promotional material issued at the time the film was made.)
