Synopsis by Nicole Gagne
Geremia is a smuggler who sneaks cigarettes and chocolate across the border between Switzerland and Italy. His brother-in-law Augusto, a municipal guard, draws him into a plot to smuggle a person across the border, but their efforts collapse when the illegal immigrant is caught and falls to his death in a ravine. Geremia and Augusto discover that the dead man was also transporting two billion lire in his suitcases, which he was supposed to deposit in a Swiss bank. The two men decide to keep the loot, and so its true owners in Switzerland must connive to get it back from them. They succeed in duping Augusto, but the clever Geremia is able to hold onto the money and safely escape with it into Switzerland.
