Mario (60) the head of a family with a pressing economic situation, intends to recover the relationship with Rodo, knows that the old sold an apartment for $ 700,000 and plans to fall well to scratch something of the inheritance.
      Late at night, Rodo tells everyone that at twelve o'clock they will be surprised.
      It's 11:30. The uncle brings some bottles of Champagne to the table, when he accidentally steps on a radio controlled toy car, he falls and hits his head dying in the act. Nobody knows what to do. Unexpectedly the bell rings, a woman claims to be the new wife of Rodo. The family quickly decides to hide the body to prevent the woman from getting scared when entering. Already in living Gachi (60) asks about her husband, everyone is about to tell him the truth when Mario takes the post and says that Rodo was kidnapped and that they are asking for a ransom.
      Before such improvisation, all are forced to continue with the plan even if they do not want to. The family must hide the body, simulate the kidnapping and try to collect the ransom.
      Later in the night, two policemen break into the house and things get complicated, nothing seems to go well.
      Finally the phone rings, they are the kidnappers, but neither Mario nor any of his henchmen is making the call. A male voice asks that the delivery of the money be made by a woman and that she go alone, the police propose that it be Vilma (40), the maid, who until now had gone unnoticed. Gachi accepts. Mario knows he lost, that he was scammed. When leaving the house with the money in their possession, Vilma and the policeman kiss. They are husband and wife.
