amorio, the reckless brother of Leander, has been banished from town, separated briefly from his love Isabella. Today amorio has snuck back through the gates and has sworn to marry Isabella, but little does he know that only one thing stands in his way: his brother. Unbeknownst to them both, the two brothers are set to marry the same woman. With only days left before both marriages, amorio and Leander struggle with an idiotic priest, a slow-thinking servant, and the wretched mother of Isabella, only to find out in the end the greatest coincidence of all. . .
