Ricardo agrees and sets off across America to find a rich American woman to marry in a hurry. He only has four days. After doing exhausting research he meet a a nice girl who is unfortunately desired by a former husband. Defeated, Riccardo returns to Italy where an unhappy fate awaits him, his wife.
