An employer of a young governess decides to play a joke on his newly hired girl. On the governess' first play day, the employer of JuliaVasilenova pretends to whittle away at her salary for no work on Sundays, Days off for holidays, for his son, Kolya, tearing his jacket while she watched him, for his daughter, Varya, losing her gloves when Julia took her sledding, even for breaking a dinner plate. All these deductions lower Julia's play to a pittance. Finally, when she is ready to accept the meager pay, the employer calls her a boob for allowing herself to be swindled by him. When Julia is asked to speak her mind about why she is so reluctant to stand up for herself, the employer discovers the real Julia Vasilevnova.
