A lawyer pays a visit to Matti Ojanperä (Matti Pellonpää), a bum living under a bridge in the Helsinki harbour, to inform him that he is about to inherit an American aunt of his. The sum 1,000,000 Fmk would be his, if only he meets the qualifications set by his aunt.
He must show that he is capable of ‘living properly’ and possessing a ‘respectable occupation and a family he can support’. Otherwise the money would go to a foundation the chairman of which the lawyer himself happens to be!
Initially Matti can’t care less about the idea, but his cousin Kari Pöllänen (Kari Väänänen) persuades him to have a change of heart and suggests he teach Matti ‘how to lead a decent life and act like a gentleman’. Matti agrees only on the condition that Kari shall take his place among the bums for those two weeks until the aunt’s arrival.
