Synopsis

Hadimrška, an auditor, is sent to Prague. He is to reorganise Mr Zlatník's gramophone company so that it can repay its debts to the bank. The young owner has brought the company to the brink of bankruptcy by promoting the career of cabaret singer Mici Angora. Zlatník is hoping his financial straits will be resolved by marriage to Asta, daughter of the wealthy consul Vieland. He does not realise that Asta is not blindly longing for marriage and has joined the company incognito as a secretary. Zlatník ends his relationship with Mici and Asta falls in love with him. The uncompromising Hadimrška gets down to work: he decides to sell the villa that Zlatník bought Mici. Hadimrška becomes unexpectedly popular when Mici changes the words of one of her cabaret songs to include his name. When Hadimrška goes to seize the singer's villa, his nerve fails him. His suit soaked with water in a shower-bath, he is forced to flee in a woman's negligée, and the bank fires him. Mici finds a new lover - the consul. The gramophone company's fortunes revive with the new song about Hadimrška. Zlatník asks the consul for his daughter's hand in marriage. Hadimrška returns home in despair, where he is elected mayor on account of his new-found popularity.
