The ever-optimistic Amadeus (Josef Hruby) is the local postman for a small viillage who is more obsessed with flying than anything else: he is working on a contraption that will keep him airborn when he leaps off his launching pad, a nearby hill. His hopes are always dashed, along with his bones, as his contraption is not much better than a leap without it. Nevertheless, he is undaunted and the villagers soon become accustomed to dusting him off, and taking him in for repairs. That brings him into regular contact with the new town physician, a young woman who is understandably dubious about his chosen avocation, given the amount of repeated injury it inflicts. Amadeus, in the meantime, is quite taken with the doctor, and he begins to hope his flights of fancy in that direction will not also crash-land in the end. Meanwhile, the doctor has a boyfriend of sorts, and so it looks as though Amadeus' luck has to change if his interest in the doctor is to get off the ground.
