Mrs. Popoff, widow of a landowner, has vowed never to remarry and abjures the company of men forever. Then Smirnoff, one of her late husband’s creditors, forces himself into her presence. He’s had some little experience with women and also sworn off love. So – they seem groomed for quarrelling, and they do, to the point where the anti-feminist Smirnoff challenges her to a duel. To his surprise and delight – she accepts. The misogynist creditor suddenly becomes a suitor, and by the end it’s realized Mrs. Popoff’s widowhood is also about to end.
