Marcantonio Ravi has a plan: to give his beautiful daughter, Stellina, in marriage to the elderly but hugely wealthy Don Diego Alcozer.
Justifying his decision to appalled family and neighbours, he encourages the lazy Pepe Alletto to take a longer view: in only a few years, following Don Diego's death, a younger, more suitable husband can be found.
Stellina herself is bitterly opposed to the marriage, fainting at her wedding party, and events spiral further out of control when Pepe's bullish lawyer brother-in-law becomes involved...
