Country girl Tonka lives in Prague and works as a prostitute, unbeknownst to her family. One day, a convicted murderer asks to spend a night with a girl before his execution. Policemen ask many prostitutes if they're willing to do the job, but all of them refuse, except Tonka. As a result, none of her customers wants to visit her again and other prostitutes shun her.
