Palma de Majorca, just like St. Moritz, Capri, etc., is an international goal for holidaymakers. Here, among the others, is a group of young Italians, in search of love affairs. After various events, two of them fall into the traps set by a couple of mothers who are anxiously trying to find husbands for their daughters. In Palma we also find the usual old businessman doing his best to win the favours of his young girl-friend, who would be glad to squeeze some money out of him, and have fun with young men at the same time. But all the traps she sets inevitably fail. And the famous American film star  could not fail to come to Palma. Nobody knows whether she has come to relax after her last film, or whether she just wants to get her energy reserves back before making a new one. But her producer has her closely watched by an implacable duke, and she doesn’t really have a chance to phone her athletic boy-friend, John. When she does, he immediately rushes to meet her, but can only just catch a glimpse of her. There is also a new, original fellow in Palma: it is the Italian Anselmo Pandolfini, a lively, but lame man. He boldly manages to approach the famous film-star, to win her a considerable sum, to kidnap her while swimming, away from the coast, and to help her meet her lover by throwing a party... with excellent Italian wine and spaghetti. Afterwards, Anselmo, happy and satisfied, goes back to his work... straightforward relaxation.
