Synopsis

Pavlína the seamstress loses her one hundred crown note, money she had painstakingly saved up to buy herself a pair of ladies shoes. A number of neighbours one by one find the banknote - and lose it again. When Pavlína returns home crying, she is comforted by her neighbours. Those who briefly possessed the banknote themselves feel twinges of conscience. At night, one by one, they each slip a one hundred crown banknote under Pavlína's door. When she wakes up she finds not only all the banknotes but also a box with the shoes she longed for, a present from her fiancé.

Note

The first performance of the film was held on the 1st of August 1941 on festival Filmové žně in Zlín.
