L’amico Fritz is a charming romantic story set amidst cherry orchards and vineyards. Fritz Kobus is a wealthy landowner who has sworn to remain a bachelor. When his friend, the rabbi David, bets him that within a year he will get married, the confident Fritz wagers his Clairfontaine vineyard. It’s Fritz’s birthday and more friends arrive for the celebration. The atmosphere changes when Suzel, the young daughter of Fritz's tenant, enters with a birthday bouquet. Will Fritz lose his bet after all?
