Description:Socrate, a weird parrot, one day flies away through an open window. The mistress of the parrot imposes on her boyfriend Ajax a terrible condition: if he doesn’t find Socrate, she will not marry him. Ajax immediately starts to look for Socrate, but soon he discovers that the parrot has been captured and sold to a young lady leaving for Havana. Finally Ajax manages to get to Cuba, but once there he finds out that Socrate has already flown away to return to his original owner. Ajax's girlfriend telegraphs to him, that now he can return to her – but she will wait in vain: Ajax has already fallen in love with the young lady who emigrated to Cuba.
