Synopsis

The rather frivolous Zdeněk is looking forward to a weekend with his girl Eva. The uncompromising Eva, however, insists on them both taking part in a car rally, Zdeněk as driver and Eva as navigator. Zdeněk is not especially happy at the way of spending the weekend and during the race he starts deliberately annoying Eva in various petty ways. Eva is angry with him, because it looks as if they won't complete the rally, but Zdeněk is an excellent driver and the two win first place. The race ends with a party and dance, but Eva refuses to go into the hall. In the end she comes, but the trouble between them fails to disappear and the couple are unavoidably heading for a break-up.
