SYNOPSIS

Gida, a Hungarian officer's widow, lives in a small garrison town with seven daughters. Mici, the middle daughter, delights her younger sisters with her wildness, but her attractiveness worries her elder sisters, as the Hungarian marriage custom requires sisters to marry in order of age. If a younger sister marries before an elder, the elder becomes a spinster and has difficulty finding a mate. When her elder sisters complain that Mici's pranks drive away possible suitors, Gida sends Mici to a convent school. She sneaks off one evening to a costume ball and meets a dashing lieutenant, Count Horkoy, who falls in love with her. Expelled from the convent for this prank, Mici returns home and is forced to wear the short dresses of a young girl until her sisters marry. Horkoy follows and, masquerading as Cousin Toni, he arranges marriages for Mici's elder sisters, the price for each success being a kiss from Mici. Although the wrong suitors fall in love with the wrong girls, after Baron Rodviany arrives and proposes to Katinka, the eldest sister, whom he had loved years earlier, four joyful weddings are ... +
