A dandy from Zagreb, Mr Fulir (played by Relja Bašić), starts flirting with Perica's mother during a family picnic. At first, Perica's father doesn't notice anything and invites Fulir to their residence. Perica's father wants to marry off Perica's aunt to Fulir, pairing them because Fulir is a good man and she is rich. After multiple rendezvous, he becomes aware of Fulir's attempts to seduce his wife.
