Synopsis

Vejvara and his bride spend a happy wedding night together and Kondelík with his wife Betynka also spend a night of love with each other. The next day their daughter and her husband come for lunch at the Kondelíks and the father-in-law gives Vejvara some advice about married life. After some time Kondelíková discovers she is expecting a child and she tells this news to her aunt Katynka. Pepička, too, soon announces similar glad tidings to her mother. They both are preparing to go out to a dance but they have an accident as they leave the house and cannot go to the party. When Pepička visits her parents again, Kondelík discovers that not only his daughter is pregnant but his wife is too. Mrs Muknšnáblová has finally succeeded in marrying her daughter Lotynka off to Mr Pajtlšmíd who, however, does not find happiness in this union. In fear of gossip Mrs Kondelíková takes herself off to a summer residence but Kondelík can hardly survive on his own. Mrs Kondelíková is also missing her husband so she moves into an empty flat in the house where her daughter lives. Mother and daughter give birth on the same day and Kondelík becomes a father and grandfather at the same time. Pepička gives birth to a little girl and Mrs Kondelíková has twins. (According to the film title sheet.)
