Synopsis

Eva, daughter of factory owner Konrád, runs away from home because she cannot accept her father's remarriage. When she finally decides to return home she falls into a lake in the Tatra mountains. The innkeeper in the tavern "U divoké krásy", Maryna, lends Eva a dress. At this time Kamil, the young director of Konrád's factory, visits the pub with his chauffeur Toník. Toník soon wins over Maryna, whom he takes to be Eva's employee. Kamil falls for Eva, whom he thinks a innkeeper because of her clothes, and tries to kiss her. Eva consents to the kiss so long as Kamil then marries her. When Kamil explains that he cannot marry a common publican, Eva decides to punish the young man. She pretends she is considering an offer of marriage made her by Kytličko, a widow considerably older than her, and that she will only turn Kytličko down if Kamil pledges in writing to marry her. Kamil loses his temper and leaves. On the way, however, he realises he loves her. He returns and accepts Eva's condition. Maryna's uncle then comes into the tavern and, because of the women's confusion, he cannot understand who is marrying who. Luckily Eva's father arrives and puts everything in order to the satisfaction of everybody.
