Pavle, who is a poor cart-driver, has two girls, Maro and Tamro. The girls have a dream to take classes at a ballet school, but Pavle cannot afford such a luxury. Vardo, a laundress, decides to help the little girls. For that purpose she steals cattle, firewood and a mink coat from a rich merchant's house. She warms up Pavle's house with the stolen firewood and pays the fee for the girls' ballet classes. Vardo, however, is found out and accused of larceny. All the laundresses in the neighborhood go on strike in Vardo's support.
