Raptusiewcz, residing in one half of a castle, with the other half inhabited by a despised notary, Milczek, wants to marry the widowed Podstolina. Perfectly aware of his shortcomings regarding looks and savoir-faire, Raptusiewicz asks Papkin to arrange the marriage for him. Papkin quickly comes to his aid. However, although he acts like a hero and a lady-killer, Papkin actually turns out to be a coward and an escapist.
