The Neapolitan Jeremiah, a pizza peddler, and Slim, a wanderer with a fertile imagination to steal from the country squire, Goldwater, a treasure which he has obtained through criminal means and has hidden. Sacristan disguised as a priest and who, with the help of Slim, fakes two miracles. Jeremiah tries to induce Goldwater, who is aware of the harm he has done, to confess where the treasure is. The attempt fails so it is up to Slim and Lucy, one of Jeremiah’s two daughters, to achieve their goal. Meanwhile, however, Goldwater is suspicious about the true identity of the strange priest and orders his men to eliminate him. Jeremiah is saved by Slim and  but pretends to be dead and later reappears as the ghost of himself which terrifies Goldwater, causing him to reveal the hiding place of the treasure, which is then found. Jeremiah and the others, however, do not get to enjoy their bounty, but are forced to give to the people of the town.
