Franco Pietrasicca, a petty thief just out of jail, and prince Francisco Ribanera di Espinosa, a penniless noble, join forces in order to make some money, one to make ends meet, the other to pay off a hefty gambling debt. First they try to steal a precious necklace, but they fail; then they try to sell a fake Stradivarius, but that fails, too. So the pair have to resort to extorting money from Francisco's uncle. Franco passes himself off as a South American priest in search of funds to fight the revolutionaries and manages to extort thousands out of the uncle. Having paid off his debt, Francisco and his partner in crime go to a gambling house where they are mistaken by a policewoman for a pair of robbers and are clapped in jail. A slave to his fettish for gambling, Francisco organises a betting system in prison, but he loses everthing he has to Franco and is obliged to become his servant.
