Students of a Prague school arrive at a village on a hop-picking team and are looking for a place to sleep in the improvised dormitory, set up in the local gymnasium. František is eager to join the three-member gang of famous thugs from the class, headed by Jarda. But the boys reject him, and he thus has to content himself with the company of his spoiled schoolmate Milánek, with whom he works at the hop-garden under the vigilant supervision of the professor of physical training. František indeed is not particularly mad about work. In the evening, the team-workers visit the local country fair and its attractions. There, František meets a pretty long-haired girl and it seems that their mutual sympathy will develop into deeper feelings. František returns to the dormitory after lights-out and does not care about his professor's reprove. He appeals to the gang but the boys, however, keep mocking his feelings for the girl. František challenges Jarda to a fist fight in the bathroom. Although he loses, he wins his respect and is allowed to move to the bed next to the admired gang leader. He then sacrifices his relationship with the girl to the desired friendship of the gang.
