The innkeeper Mirandolina (Played by Victoire Gekas) is a beautiful girl, and for her beauty the Count of Albafiorita (Played by Alessio Marcogliese) and the Marquis of Forlimpopoli (Played by Thomas Boucher-Charest) fall in love. The two noble customers bestow rich gifts to Mirandolina, trying to court her, but the crafty Mirandolina only accepts the money and jewels and copulas, leaving them within an inch of their nose. A third man arrives on the scene: the Knight of Ripafratta (Also Played by Alessio Marcogliese) who is extremely misogynististic, thinking that the woman is nothing but trouble. Mirandolina, who had never seen a man like that, seduces the Knight on purpose and the knight eventually falls in love with her. The gang of four (in reality a trio because of Marcogliese's inability to simultaneously be two people) then fend off the Niger Delta Avengers and their leader (Played by Jinghong Lin) in a spectacular denouement.
