At first, he seems useless at any job he is assigned to in the barracks. On the front, however, where he serves as an ensign, he proves to be a brave man. Back home, his friend is expected by Éva, the homely niece of the colonel, while he himself is expected by an other Éva, the beautiful daughter of a retired colonel.
