The old farmer Franz Flender (Siegfried Rauch) would like to marry his daughter Wally (Christine Neubauer) to the wealthy landowner Josef Gruber (Martin Feifel). The two of them were actually involved in a relationship, but their different ideas about almost everything forced them to split up. Today Wally resists the advances of the now widowed Josef. In fact, when he asks her to dance at the village festival she refuses him in front of all the villagers. Flender confronts his strong-willed daughter and loses his temper with her, causing her to storm out, deeply distraught. Out on the lonely mountainside her only companion is a young eagle. Meanwhile, a maid called Veronika (Petra Berndt) is intent on intrigue; she constructs a tissue of lies in order to drive a wedge even deeper between father and daughter, so that she can win Josef for herself.
