Insurance broker Pablo Sterni writes up a policy for a client who wants to insure his luxurious sports car. Convinced that a claim will never be filed for this car because it never leaves the garage, Pablo decides to cash the check without actually insuring the vehicle. But when the car is stolen and demolished he finds himself in a fix.

In order to make the money to pay off the claim, Sterni asks his timid wife and an out-of-work actor to impersonate Janis Joplin and John Lennon in order to swindle his cousin Leon, who has just inherited a great deal of money.

Leon, who owns a record store and is perpetually stoned, firmly believes that one day his two childhood idols will return to Earth to visit him.
