The story is about a poor, young man who travels to the big city in search of his fortune and love. In a series of comedic accidents he becomes the reluctant leader of the local mafia. He leads a group of gangsters on a roller coaster ride adventure as he tries to repay a debt to an old woman that saved his life. The story also centers around the woman he falls in love with. She tries to inspire him to do the noble things - much unlike a gangster. This results in one hilarious event after the other until it reaches its ending comic crescendo.
