The young serviceman Olda works in a hotel located in a city centre. Today, he takes home a cage with chickens in it on his moped. He was asked to tend to the birds by his grandmother who left for some spa treatment. But he has no fodder for them and wants to get it during the day because the chickens would probably die of hunger by the evening. Olda's foreman likes to skive at work, and he thus throws all his duties onto the obliging Olda and leaves. The repair of an old heating unit results in a breakdown. The young man must not only find the fodder but also a rubber valve gasket. The young hotel chambermaids laugh at the assiduous Olda. But no shops have what Olda needs in stock. The hotel guests – businessmen – have just finished their meetings. They feel sorry for the young pleasant guy; they offer him help and invite him to their party. The event is also attended by the chambermaids, but only one of them is shy and restrained. She is the one who Olda declares his love to. The businessmen ask for the favour of this princess in exchange for providing scarce goods. Olda protects the girl but she, too, eventually laughs at him along with the rest. The naive boy is then helped with what he needs by the cunning underhand moneychanger Hugo.
