The noble Pantaleo Santa Paola dies suddenly, without write a will. Immediately in the villa go his three grandchildren, along with three other relatives. All claim family assets, and at the end of the story reaches the poor Nicolino, who is also the nephew of Pantaleo. While the dispute rages, the Pantaleo ghost appears, and declares his true heir.
