In the good old days of Emperor Franz Joseph’s Danube monarchy, the Hendelberg marriage market is held each spring. Young men and women in the area willing to be married, and who like each other, are married on the very same at the small chapel. The rich farmer Lugosch has also come with his son Florian, for the father plans to marry off his simple son to the proud Jelka, farmer Martin’s daughter. Jelka, however, is not the least bit interested in Florian and the latter is not really interested either, for his thoughts constantly centre round the sweet maiden Julischka. The main bone of contention between Lugosch and Martin is in fact the re-possession of the abandoned Steinerhof. While Lugosch would like to acquire the property for his son, Martin wants his ward Peter Werschitz, the legitimate heir to the farm, to be the new Steinerhof farmer. No one knows, however, where Peter is or even whether he is still living – and in three days the legal deadline has expired, after which Steinerhof comes under the hammer ... those present, speechless out of astonishment, find out that Julischka served as maid with Peter Werschitz in Budapest not long ago. The agitated questioning of the girl reveals still more incredible things: the said Werschitz is supposed to be a poet! Martin, Jelka and Julischka set off for Budapest to bring Peter home again. But before a true Steinerhof farmer and successful author can be made out of the prodigal son, all kinds of comic hurdles between the farmers and the city-folks must be overcome. But in the end, the right lovers find each other – without needing any help from the marriage market – and young happiness blossoms at Steinerhof.
