Plot synopsis
On a large upper-class estate, the young Baron von Rehren, after his rejection by Ellen, whom he deeply loves, he becomes smitten with the innocent Nastia, the house porter's only daughter. She becomes his challenge and means of killing time. After several feeble oppositions, the young woman gives way to his advances and becomes his mistress. Although anxious for his daughter, the father doesn't dare voice his feelings about this delicate situation. Ellen, who is love with a young dandy, decides one day in complicity with Nastia's father to become the Baron's wife.
