Die Schauspielerin Maria gibt als "Gretchen" ihre Abschiedsvorstellung in Wien, weil sie in Berlin ein neues Engagement antritt. Vorher aber will sie sich von den Strapazen erholen, in aller Ruhe Urlaub machen. Ihr vermögender Freund Peter hat ihr sein Gut Holtenau bei Wien vermacht, und mit einigen Kollegen macht sie sich auf den Weg dorthin. Doch die fröhliche Runde landet aus Versehen auf dem Nachbargut Stefan von Holtenaus. So lernen sich die beiden kennen.

Actress Maria gives her final performance in Vienna as "Gretchen", because she has found a new professional home in Berlin. But before she starts her new career, she wants to take a little vacation. Her wealthy friend Peter has put his estate in Holtenau near Vienna at her disposal and she and a few colleagues make their way there. The happy group, however, ends up by mistake on the neighboring estate belonging to Stefan von Holtenau and there's a lot of getting-to-know-each-other which has to be done.
