A decorated veteran of WWII has rented a room to two college students to help make ends meet. While preparing for her annual Veteran's Day celebration, she asks the girls for the rent. Their 'zest for life' style of living has them always short of money, so they ask their friend Jura to help them. His solution is to get the old lady drunk and steal her medals. He sells them to an antique shop and gives the money to the girls.
