They accept the proposal of a Mexican ballad singer named Felipe, which involves stealing, and then dividing a large treasure accumulated by a Mexican government General named El Supremo. Upon entering Mexico, the enterprise succeeds in their mission, thanks to the wiles of Agnes, that has enchanted El Supremo, and with the help of Felipe. Once in possession of the treasure, Felipe (who was been faking blindness) forces his comrades to surrender the treasure to his Mexican revolutionary comrades.
