Az Ember Neha Teved (Mistakes Will Happen) is a cookie-cutter Hungarian comedy about a poor heroine and a rich hero. Anna Tokes plays Anna, the daughter of near-bankrupt radio manufacturer Illes (Julius Gozon). Gross, greedy lawyer Papp (Julius Csortos) agrees to bail out Illes financially, but only if Anna will marry him. He gives her a diamond brooch to bind the bargain, whereupon the bauble is stolen by a pickpocket (Gero Maly). He passes the brooch on to streetwalker Zizus (Margit Dayka), who in turn loses it in the home of wealthy, bibulous young wastrel Andreas Pakay (Antal Pager). When he sobers up the next morning, Pakay can't remember any of the events of the night before. He does know that there was a girl in the house, and that the girl left her brooch behind. Now there's nothing for it but to trace the brooch to its owner, and guess what happens next?
