Amedeo and Ofelia (Ugo Tognazzi and Mariangela Melato) own an old, fairly unprofitable apartment house in Rome. Someone has offered to buy the property for redevelopment for a lot of money, but only if the building has no tenants. Since six of its apartments are currently in use, Amedio and Ofelia decide to find ways to get every one of them emptied. In this antic comedy, they manage to blackmail a priest-tenant and have almost half the remainder arrested for crimes ranging from drug-trafficking to prostitution.
