The hotel room No. 33 is entered by a man who was hitherto secretly followed by several men clad in leather coats. The hotel guest pulls various papers and documents out of his briefcase and feverishly works on them. A girl waits in the room next door, reading a magazine. Her lover finally comes in, bringing flowers. The girl is from a wealthy family which would probably hardly tolerate her acquanting a poor student. This is why the young couple covertly meets in a hotel, planning their bright future to come as soon as the young man graduates from the university and is appointed to a respectable position. They make love and the girl falls asleep. The student hears noises from the neighbouring room. The man in the room No. 33 already knows he is trapped. He writes a letter and puts it into an envelope with several papers. The secret police bang on the door. The man slips the envelope under the connecting door to the adjacent room and, whispering, asks for it to be posted. The policemen speedily storm into his room and force him by beating to hand them the briefcase with the documents. Then they abduct the bleeding man to their car. The student reads the letter. It is for a woman whose address is written on the envelope. The kidnapped man writes about their past relationship and mentions being in the hotel where they once were together. But the young student is not brave. He does not dare to go to the letter box which he can see from the hotel window. He instead slips the envelope under the door of another room from where the noise of a party is heard. When the girl wakes up, he refuses to tell her the reason for his deep sadness.
