Storyline

Quattro furfantelli per sbarcare il lunario si fanno passare per frati profughi dall'Ungheria, sperando di raccimolare un po' di denaro. Finiscono però in un convento dove sperimentano digiuno e penitenze. Quando decidono di fuggire scoprono che il barone Cimino è innamorato della figlia dell'ortolano e che questi, come tutti in paese, ha il terrore che torni Saruzzo Messina, mafioso e promesso sposo della figlia. Giocondo ha l'ennesima idea: vista la somiglianza, far vestire Gaudenzio come Saruzzo per estorcere denaro ai paesani. Ma il vero Messina torna e allora... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia
