Don Felice, a writer, and Don Pasquale, a photographer, are best friends; they live next to each other in very poor financial circumstances. One day the Marquis Eugenio offers them a very rare opportunity. The Marquis is very much in love with the beautiful daughter of a wealthy ex-cook, but needs a proper family presentation to the girl's father before he can ask for her hand in marriage. He asks Don Felice and Don Pasquale to play the parts of his father and uncle, who are noble. They accept, but while the comedy is being played, the false characters are exposed. However, the day is saved when the Marquis' real father shows up and gives his consent - thus winning over the beautiful girl and the wealthy ex-cook. The wedding bells ring out!
