Synopsis

Very young Jana impatiently listens to Ovid's words from the book Songs of Love and Sorrow from which her friend Láďa reads to her. The courageous poet's words concerning expressions of love sharply contrast with the shy behaviour of the young man who is reading. Jana tries to provoke him a little with her coquettish yet reluctant expressions but Láďa is confused. Eventually, the girl has to take the initiative into her own hands.
