Synopsis

Count Březenský brings the tinker Jano back with him to his estate. On the way they spend the night in an inn where they are attacked by robbers. The mother of the count lives on the estate with her niece, the comtesse Jelena, who loves the count. Jano is enchanted by Dorla from the neighbouring village. However, Pavel, the nephew of the smuggler Sršán, also loves her. Jano's attentions cause Pavel's jealousy. Sršán gangs up with one of the bandits who attacked the count at the inn and, together, they organise another robbery. During the spring day celebrations, the old countess announces Jelena's betrothal to Březenský and he asks for Dorla's hand on Pavel's behalf. Sršán intends to make use of the spring day distractions to attack the count, however, he and his gang are discovered by Pavel. During a struggle with the gang, Jano is shot as he protects the count with his own body, and he dies. In the autumn, however, two weddings take place - the count with the comtesse Jelena and Pavel with Dorla.
