Uncommon story in five acts


The young chemist Edgar Zoran discovers a synthetic method of producing petrol but neither he nor his friend Miloš Krešín have any money to buy a production factory.
Edgar decides to turn to the banker Dombs with a request for loan. He goes to visit Dombs but finds a thief there instead. He takes a resolution to catch the thief himself, thereby earning Dombs´ gratitude. However, he can´t resist borrowing the money the thief had been about to steal.
He leaves a note for the banker saying that he will return the money within a month and also he wrote a love letter for the banker´s beautiful nice Andrea. However, he doesn´t sign either of the letters and took Andrea´s photo.
