Synopsis

The eccentric daughter of the millionaire Landras, Lilka, craves the affections of a man from the lowest walks of line. The factory owner Landras suddenly disappears. A young engineer Racek, in love with Lilka, makes the most of the girl's romantic tendencies and, dressed in disguise as a robber, pretends to break into their house. He introduces himself as Ferry Šakal and tells her that he will take her in a green car to the robbers' den. Meanwhile, the private detective Bubák, alias Bob Back, is investigating the supposed disappearance of the factory owner. Lilka falls in love with Ferry and when the young man is sufficiently assured of her affections for him, he confesses to her that he isn't a robber at all. This cures Lilka of her foolish ideas. Lilka's father returns home after having been away sorting out some problems with his lover. He notices that his daughter has changed and he gladly gives his consent to her marriage to engineer Racek.

Note

The film includes rare shots of old Podskalí, which no longer exists today.
