"Venice, St Mark's square, 1750. Doctor Balanzoni has two daughters to marry off, Beatrice and Rosaura. The first is courted by Ottavio, the second one by Florindo. Then Lelio appears - a young and dashing Neapolitano, a self-assured, smooth talker, who is also a compulsive liar. Seductive towards both young women, he is going to throw disorder into everyone's minds and hearts."
