Count Giosuè, an industrialist in the Veneto province specialising in the production of spaghetti, is close to death. His sister, his wife and daughter are fighting to obtain his huge inheritance, and this battle turns into a behind-the-scenes war characterised by low blows and deceit. Into this complicated family situation comes Giacomo, an ex-convict who has been hired by Magda, the count's sister, with the task of compromising his rival wife and driving her away.
To achieve his goal, Giacomo even has to pretend to be homosexual, but this cover proves ineffective. The villa is inhabited by charming and cunning women who test him, trying to seduce him and involve him in their plans.
It is not only Giacomo who finds himself in this complicated situation: Marco, the young nephew of one of the women, also finds himself attracted to the curvaceous bodies of the women and tries to get close to them. After the death of the nobleman, a final twist clearly reveals the power dynamics within the family.
