Uomo di buon cuore, padre e marito affettuoso, il contrabbandiere napoletano Don Vincenzo Tramontano gode del potere e del prestigio tipici dei ‘mammasantissima’. Per aver sconfitto un suo concorrente siciliano, capo di un’altra organizzazione di contrabbandieri e per aver umiliato in pubblico l’esoso proprietario di un banco di pegni, Don Vincenzo si fa due nemici decisi a vendicarsi contro di lui. Questi imbastiscono così una trappola per avere il pretesto di uccidere legalmente Don Vincenzo.
