Marcin, a bon vivant from Kraków, gradually runs into financial straits. The only chance he has to return to his previous life style is the wealth of his aunt Neli, who is willing to transfer all her property to her nephew and… his future wife. The sooner an appropriate candidate can be found, the better.
