Synopsis

Mr Habr goes to Mariánské Lázně with Mr Nožička and his daughter Eva. Habr is hoping to bring his son Jára to his senses, since he is frittering away his money with a singer called Ossi. Nožička wants to have fun in the spa town but his energetic wife has ordered him to tactfully get Eva acquainted with the large landowner Roudenský, whom she has selected to be her daughter's husband. But everything goes differently to what was expected. Eva falls for the singer Frank. Nožička has an affair with Ossi but gets mixed up with Ossi's false husbend Roudenský's chauffeur, the fraudster Karel who is posing as Roudenský. To avoid scandal Nožička pays him 500 crowns. But the complications, far from being resolved, culminate with the arrival of Nožička's wife Matylda. Everybody gathers around one table. Frank and Jára both introduce themselves to Matylda as Roudenskýs. Matylda checks to see if these Roudenskýs are related. Nožička has to pay Karel another 500 crowns so that his wife does not find out about his affair.
