Danilo and Hanna once had an affair but now he refuses to marry her so that no one can think he is after her money. She, on the other hand, refuses to marry him unless he tells her he loves her. After a series of vicissitudes, Hanna admits she would lose her fortune if she did remarry, so he declares his love for her and everything ends happily.
