The story is told through the unlikely romance of Zevi, a Bohemian Yiddish poet, and Rukheleh, a nice Jewish girl who wants to marry him. Things get complicated by the arrival in town of a a gypsy carnival and its sultry dancer, by Zevi's dreams of a literary career and by the jealousy of the local butcher.
