Synopsis

The newlyweds Hanuš return from their wedding with the resolution that there will be no antagonisms and quarrels between them. Their decision, however, does not last even one day. Lily, the wife, runs away from home after the first squabble. During her absence Hanuš's uncle and aunt Růžena come for a visit. Hanuš, to conceal the rift with Lily, introduces to his relatives his cousin Eva from Prague as his wife. Lily misses the train to her parent's place and returns home, where Hanuš must pass her off as his cousin. During this time extensive manoeuvres are taking place in Klatovy and Hanuš must also put up in his villa two officers, Captain Kovalský and Lieutenant Dvořák. Kovalský falls in love with Eva and Lily flirts with Dvořák. Aunt Růžena makes advances at the lieutenant and on account of him wants to divorce her husband after thirty years of marriage. At a party given at the close of the maneuvers Lily reveals the whole ruse. Kovalský is happy that he may woo Eva without any barrier, aunt Růžena reconciles with her husband, and the Hanuš and his wife promise to never argue with each other again.
