Jasi, a young man from Madrid, is in love with Teresa, his widowed mother, and although he's constantly out of work he is capable of practically anything which will enable him to supply his fun-loving mother with the cash she needs to pursue her "dolce vita" existence. He goes to Ibiza in search of a well-to-do lonely woman of whom he can take advantage. It doesn't take him long to find what he's looking for and he becomes the lover of a rich photographer and poses for her painter-husband named Mario. Together with his friend Elaine, he robs his lover and is threatened by Mario who suspects him of the crime. Jasi ends up marrying a mentally retarded millionaire, Marianne Lowson, and - although Teresa is by this time involved with a wealthy Englishman of whom Jasi is desperately jealous - he uses his newfound riches to buy a villa for his beloved mother
