Storyline

Pasquale e Angela sono contadini, figli di due famiglie che hanno la terra vicino e sono dirimpettai in paese e, naturalmente sono poveri. Si vogliono bene e desiderano sposarsi, ma per sposarsi occorrono molti, molti soldi: per gli anelli, il rinfresco, i vestiti... e cosi tutto viene sempre rimandato all'anno successivo. Alla fine, per tagliare la testa al toro, le due famiglie decidono di far fuggire i due, risparmiando così anche quei pochi denari che hanno da parte. Pasquale e Angela fuggono e incontrano non poche difficoltà mentre le famiglie, come d'accordo, inscenano un finto litigio per rendere verosimile la fuga. Finto litigio?
