He Makes a bet with his two friends that their respective girlfriends will not stay faithful if put to the test. He the devises a plan. He tells the two women that their lovers have been called up to the reserves. They are beside themselves with grief and sing a tearful farewell. But then, two handsome strangers arrive (there men in disguise) on a mission of seduction, aided by Despina, the long suffering bar maid. The women are determined to resist. Chaos ensues. Will Don Alfonso win his bet?
