Miloš, assistant to a famous Egyptologist, is secretly in love with the Aenny, the daughter of his master. For him she refuses another suitor called Mr. Fridolín. When the two scientists discover the lost tomb of pharaoh Tu Ten Kámen and prepare to present the mummy to the town of Zelená Lhota, Fridolín steals it and claims it was he who made the find. In the end Miloš manages to uncover the fraud and thus wins the favour of his father-in-law to be.

Czech silent comedy that was quick to respond to the new discovery at the time of the tomb of boy-king Tutankhamen by using the namen Tu Ten Kámen for one of its characters. Translated the rather long title means "Tutankhamen - How love can flame in an instant, even for the dead". The film is so far considered to be lost.
