Synopsis

Among dozing passengers in the train going from Slovakia to Prague there is a slim future music student Zuzana. The conductor makes a fuss in the car when accusing a young Roma man of a purse theft. The young man is evidently not the offender. At the end station he helps Zuzana to bring her luggage to the baggage room willingly. The girl walks then through the town and asks how to get to the Hradební Street where she shall stay at a student hostel. She meets various people among them also a cheeky young man, who hopes that the momentary meeting will lead to an affair. When Zuzana wants to make her mood better by ice-cream she misses her purse. An older man in the queue for ice-cream offers her help. Zuzana rejects first, but then they have lunch together. An older woman, perhaps the wife of the host sees the couple through the window of the cafe and makes a jealous scene. The man wants perhaps due to his unsatisfied family life to leave Prague. In the course of the dialogue the girl is homesick and she goes to the toilet to cry. The man looks in the meantime at her flute which she carries in a case. Before the student hostel where he helped her as a gentleman with her luggage they part. In the room which will be her home she finds banknotes in the flute which her unknown friend left there...
