It is not so much the destruction of the works of art that upsets Mafalda, but the quick arrest of rumrunner Beppe. Mafalda knows Beppe, and yes, sometimes she finds him tiresome or annoying.

Together with her two best friends, Mafalda sets out to find the real culprit – not knowing that in doing so she is putting her life in danger….
