This Italian comedy satirically borrows its title from a passage in Dante's Inferno ("Abandon hope, all ye who enter here"). Based on a popular stage play, the film stars Antonio Gandusio as a young man who sees an image of the poet Dante in a dream. The long-departed Dante advises our hero to play a specific lottery number, which will bring him untold riches. But there's a catch: if Gandusio follows Dante's advice, his doom will be sealed -- and he'll know exactly the day on which he will die. Awakening from his dream, Gandusio impulsively plays the proscribed lottery number and of course wins big. He spends the rest of the picture trying to prevent the rest of Dante's prophecy from coming true.
