Bruna is a beautician who struggles to make ends meet. Betrayed by her boyfriend and hounded by an unscrupulous vendor, she receives a deathbed confession by one of her usual manicure customers who is in prison. Mother of a famous bandit, Norma Pecche has hidden a treasure of jewels in one of the chairs in the living room of her villa. Contemptuous of danger, Bruna goes to the villa, but ends up being locked behind the gate in the company of a wild boar. Dino, the tatooist next door, comes to her rescue, and ends up involved in the affair. Once they discover that Norma's assets and the eight chairs will be auctioned, Bruna and Dino try to track down the collectors in seek of the jewel stuffed padding. Through thick and thin, Chinese magicians, and the lagoon and mountains, Bruna and Dino will find their real treasure.
