It is a damp cold autumn morning. Marta is making breakfast and setting off to work. Little Jenda has a sore throat and so she has to drop in on granddad to get him to come and look after the boy. On the way to work she thinks of the monotony of her life and marriage and is attacked by doubts about whether her husband Karel still really loves her. In a fashion shop she spies a beautiful pair of Indian party shoes and during the lunch break she shows them to Karel. He just glances at them and tells Marta to buy them. His indifferent words annoy Marta. In the afternoon, encouraged by her colleague, she decided she will in fact buy the shoes, but she is out of luck. In the meantime someone else has bought them. In the evening Marta listlessly dresses for the theatre. In her wardrobe she finds a box and in them the Indian shoes. Her face lights up in a smile and without a word she goes to sew a button on Karel's white shirt. All at once the wife and husband are close again.
