This story is known to many: a "novice hunter", businessman Heinrich Eisenstein must go to jail for eight days, because he was hunting a stranger land and shot a hazel grouse and a forester. However, his friend, the director of the theater Falk, manages to persuade Henry before going to prison to go with him to the ball to Prince Orlovsky, where they are waiting for "mountains of fruit, dancing until the morning, and memories to the grave".
The wife of Eisenstein, Rosalind, thanks to a series of unexpected events involving her maid Adele, and former admirer Mr. Alfred and director of the prison Frank, learns about her husband's decision and also goes to the ball. There she, disguised in a carnival dress and hiding her face under a mask, appears to the Hungarian countess...
The denouement of this intriguing story takes place after the ball early in the morning in prison, where all the masks are removed and all the characters are revealed. There were surprises. Even Prince Orlovsky surprised everyone! The happy end of this comedy will make anyone think: is it really well that we know those who are always with us, and do we not miss the most interesting and bright pages of our life during monotonous everyday life?
