One day Gypsies arrive in the area and with them comes the beautiful Daniela, whom an old Gypsy woman once had brought to the camp - nobody knew where from. Daniela loves Ondřej, but a deeper love is awoken in her by a chance encounter with Dr. Palm, who has taken to wandering in the woods since the violent death of his beloved. The doctor, too, is quite intrigued by Daniela. Ondřej steals a silver dress for Daniela from the doctor's house but is shot and wounded by a policeman. Daniela, distraught, brings Dr. Palm to Ondřej, but there is nothing he can do and the young lad dies. In Palm's villa Daniela sees that the silver dress once belonged to Palm's late wife. She decides to leave both the doctor and the camp, and departs with the old Gypsy woman. On the way they meet the policeman who recognises the silver dress, takes her for a thief, and leads her back to the doctor. The latter does not condemn Daniela. He has fallen in love with her and wants her to stay with him. She becomes his wife, but no-one ever finds out the secret of her origin. That, the old Gypsy woman takes to her grave.
The film was shot in 1929 as a silent film with a prologue in which Bronislav Livia and Zvonimir Rogoz acted (the prologue was not included in the sound version). The film came out in 1931 with subsequently spoken scenes and music. The sound version is introducted by a film foreword by F. X. Svoboda.

Píseň o lásce /Černý plamen/, Lásko, bože, lásko, Kdo má počernou galánku, Kdybych byla ptáčkem, Zahučaly hory zahučaly lesy, U panského dvora, Pod tím naším okénečkem, Tancuj, tancuj, vykrúcaj, Prijdi ty, šuhajko, ráno k nám, Bodaj by vás, vy mládenci, čerti vzali, Týnom tánom, Vrť sa dievča
