Synopsis

The following scenes are preserved fragments from the film: A Funeral. A woman sits by a window; her daughter comes to her, kneels down; they speak about something together; the daughter cries; a maid arrives; she brushes the lady's hair in front of the mirror; her daughter comes. The woman lies on the bed, raises her hand. A boy gets dressed by a river. A young man sits at a table in a garden, then dances. A man stands by a wheel of a wagon. A young man walks along a footpath; a girl arrives. The woman with the maid. A young man and a girl are wrapped in each other's arms in the woods; another girl comes, sees them and runs away. At home the young couple embrace. The man at the table on the terrace reads a newspaper; a young man arrives and probably asks for the hand of his dauther in marriage; the young man is sent away and becomes angry. A sad young man meets a young girl; they embrace; they discuss something together. An older man professes his love for the lady's maid and she becomes his wife - a woman stands in a field; another woman tries to comfort her - three women talk in an apartment; one of them leaves. (Synopsis of the surviving fragment)
