Rozarka Valentova comes home to her native village of Kvetoliby from service in Prague for the funeral of her mother. Her father forces her to work for the rich single horse-dealer Podlesky who threatens to sell Valenta's cottage in an auction for which the latter owes rent. Rozarka refuses and flees to Prague with her younger brothers and sisters to go and see their rich aunt Sestakova who takes them into her care. Valenta gets drunk and burns down the cottage. Pavel Kolinsky returns from America with the little boy Prokop. Rozarka places the blame for the arson on herself and is imprisoned. Prokop, however, claims her innocence in court. Tonik Jedlicka takes Rozarka back to Kvetoliby to be his bride. The evil and envious Betka turns the whole village against the girl. It is not until the arrival of Kolinsky and Katerina Sestakova that her innocence is proven, disputes are settled and the young lovers can finally be happy.
The original title of the play The Incendiary´s Daughter was The Maid from Prague and the Country Journeyman or The Incendiary´s Daughter. A considerable part of the film between the 3rd and 4th reels is missing.
