Young typists spend their time on reciprocal displays of their purchases rather than on their work. When they do not respond to their chief's ringing, the elderly clerk comes to their office. The girls scatter to their typewriters. Only the most courageous of them explains to him that they are getting themselves ready for a ball and therefore they have bought new shoes. The clerk recalls how he used to dance as a young man and the girl invites him to dance. The man, however, soon loses his breath. The film ends with a display of dancing shoes from the Baťa company.
