A look-alike shoe salesman is killed and substituted for Don Vincenzo, who hides out with Maria in their panic suite under the house. Only his closest associates know the truth. His two henchmen, Rosario (actor-singer Raiz) and Ciro (Giampaolo Morelli), known as the Tigers, are tasked to make sure no one finds out that Don Vincenzo didn't die of a gun wound. If everything turns out good, they would be rewarded with the inheritance of the empire of the Fish King.
There's one hitch: Nurse Fatima (Serena Rossi) saw Don Vincenzo in the hospital alive, so Ciro and Rosario ought to kill her. Surprisingly, when Ciro sees Fatima, he recognizes his childhood sweetheart in her, the only woman he's ever really loved. The feeling is mutual, in fact, and their love story is described in the following song "What a Feeling" (Neapolitan cover). Ciro chooses Fatima over Vincenzo and a life of riches and runs away with the woman. This, however, comes at a price, and the rest of the film Ciro has to fight off Vincenzo's small army of allies, from his former closest friend Rosario to various other unsavory-looking types, who all want to avenge their (now supposedly dead) boss.
