Teacher Karel Lindeček helps after classes in a classroom his pupils to write homeworks. The headmaster sends him home to his wife because she rang up she had scalded herself. Karel is running down the streets but the message of accident was only a pretext. Ilona Lindečková just needs to convey that she is over many days alone at home with their little twins while he is performing duties which arise from his many functions and concerns. She decided to leave with the children the town, in which in addition she lacks nature, and to return to her parents to the village she comes from. Karel sees her off to the railway station and at the last moment he takes on the train as well. Ilona made her parents believe that they both wanted to move to the village - only that Karel had to stay at least one more year in the town to end his engagements. The young couple meet the neighbours which are enthusiastic about their decision - they are in need of somebody as self-sacrificing as Karel for various functions and associations. Ilona finds out, that her mother for all her marital life is in vain crossed with Ilona's father, who has similar disposition as Karel, and she overcomes her disappointment. She takes it good-humouredly and states that it would not be different even if they moved to Alaska. Karel with relief and tenderly accepts that their marriage crisis has been warded off.
