Two Germans are traveling in Cuba. One saves the life of a wealthy Cuban who gives the German the hand of his daughter. She has already been married. Her young husband threatens to pursue the German over the world and kill him. Later, the old Cuban sends his lawyer, who resembles the young husband, to New York to find the German to give him $100,000. The two Germans think the fellow with the money is the one who has come to kill. Consequently they have a fearful time keeping away from the man who is trying to give them the money; the two men who look so alike, coming and going. The German's great confusion and fear forms the foundation for laughable situations.
