Synopsis
The very same day Ulises and Chucho married Lucero and Magali, the dictator of the tiny Caribbean island of Salsipuedes had the terrible idea of declaring war on Nazi Germany. Inadvertently, the newlyweds find themselves in absurd and humorous situations, until they accidentally uncover a sinister plot that threatens to end their lives but ultimately reunites the couples in a more mature way.
