The first Antonio’s day as thief is marked by tears. During an incursion at the mall, his mother is arrested, caught in fragrance of crime by the shoplifting staff. After 20 years, Antonio along with his two inseparable friends tries 'the turning point'. After some pilferages, the time has come to a robbery at a post office. Things don’t go as planned. An agent shoots at them and the band is found bleeding on the asphalt. Antonio would go with a smile, but in the reality he cannot find it, so he uses the imagination. Dressed as Lupin the 3rd, the hero of his cartoons, now he is ready to escape with his beauty.
Il primo giorno da ladro di Antonio è segnato dalle lacrime. Durante un'incursione al grande magazzino Upim, sua mamma viene arrestata, sorpresa in flagranza di reato dal personale anti taccheggio.
Sono passati 20 anni, adesso Antonio insieme ai suoi due inseparabili amici tenta "la svolta". Dopo furti e furtarelli è arrivato il momento di una rapina a un ufficio postale. Le cose però non vanno come previsto. Un agente gli spara e la banda si ritrova sanguinante sull'asfalto.
Antonio vorrebbe "andarsene" con un sorriso, ma nella realtà non riesce a trovarlo, così ricorre alla fantasia. Vestito come Lupin III, il suo eroe dei cartoni animati, è ora pronto a scappare insieme alla sua bella.
