Three friends, natural scientist Suk, Hanuš Marten and Dr Toman make the acquaintance of a village girl. Hanuš likens her to the "parnasie" flower - the grass of Parnassus - which he gives to the girl. He abandons his betrothed, Luisa Osecká, marries Parnasie and takes her to his estate at White Stag. Hanuš, as his mother had prophesied before her death, is inconstant and he begins to court Luisa once more who comes to visit them. The young woman does not know anything at first but when her husband talks about Luisa in his drunkenness, she realises the situation and, in her anger, gives birth prematurely. The child dies. Luisa rejects Hanus and becomes engaged to Dr Toman. Parnasie leaves her husband and tells him he must come for her after a year has passed if he wants her. If he does not, she will kill herself by jumping off the rocks. Hanuš Marten - after talking with Luisa and Dr Toman - wants to go back to his wife, however, her portrait falls on him from the wall and he is killed. When Parnasie hears this news from Suk, she throws herself off the rocks. Suk, the natural scientist, loved her in secret all along and he takes flowers to her grave.
The film was presented once more in 1930 by the Ringlerfilm company with the title The Girl from the Šumava Mountains.
