The famous chanteuse Sylva Varescu is preparing for her tour in America in a theater in Budapest. Her admirer, the Viennese prince's son Edwin Lippert-Weylersheim, wants to stop her and marry her - against his parents' wishes. Therefore, they obtain a conscription order. Additionally, his parents have already arranged an engagement with his cousin, Countess Stasi, and published it in announcements. When Boni, a friend of Edwin's, shows this announcement to Sylva, she leaves for America in a bad mood in his company.
A few weeks later, the engagement between Edwin and his cousin Stasi is announced at the Lippert-Weylersheims in Vienna. Suddenly, Sylva appears, causing the family honor and all assumed relationships to falter.
