The artist Sándor is staying in a small Hungarian village, on the lookout for suitable subjects for his paintings. He falls in love with the peasant girl Margit, whom he affectionately calls his "lark" (Lerche in German). Margit becomes his favourite model. However, Sándor is also involved in a loved affair with a famous singer, Vilma, while Margit is engaged to the peasant lad Pista. Overcoming her misgivings, Margit agrees to follow Sándor back to the city. It soon becomes apparent, though, that she cannot adjust to the sophistication of urban life, and she starts to suffer pangs of homesickness. The outcome is inevitable: Margit returns to her home in the country and to the arms of Pista, surrendering Sándor to the charms of Vilma.
