The "7 Aufrechten" ("Seven Righteous Men") of the title are a septet of elderly Swiss gentleman who've taken a vow of eternal friendship. En masse, the seven set out into the world to preach a doctrine of love and peace. Curiously, however, these benevolent oldsters are dead-set against the marriage of Hermine (Karin Hardt), daughter of one of the men, and Karl (Albert Levien), the son of another. Their fears that this union might somehow break up their friendship prove unfounded, however, and all ends happily. The pacifistic sentiments of Hermine und die 7 Aufrechten would soon be forbidden in Nazi Germany, which is one of the many reasons that director Frank Wysbar (later Wisbar) eventually fled to the U.S.
