Famed Czech actress Nataša Gollová plays a young poor maid who suddenly inherits a hotel in director Martin Frič's "The Blue Star Hotel" (Hotel Modrá hvězda). When she mistakenly takes one hotel on the other side of town as her inheritance, she soon finds herself in an insane asylum. With misunderstandings cleared up, she heads to the Blue Star Hotel in District IV, rundown and having three tenants who reside there without paying the rent. Luckily, a wealthy young man (Oldřich Nový) desires to have his wedding at her hotel. He just might save her from her troubles.
