Valeria has lived in her small, Hungarian town her entire life. The locals think she is mean and rude, but very honest, to a fault really.
Valeria finds herself taken with the local potter. A dapper older man who does not regard her as the others do.
He is involved with Ibolya, who runs the local bar.
The potter finds himself taken with Valeria and wanting to be with her instead of the very forward bar owner.
A chimney sweep comes to town and finds that he, too is taken with Valeria, to the amazement of the town's inhbitants.
