For many years, Dant è s barely exists in his tiny, isolated cell; he almost loses his mind and his will to  live until one day he hears a fellow prisoner burrowing nearby. He too begins digging, and soon he  meets an old Abb é  who knows the whereabouts of an immense fortune, one that used to belong to  an immensely wealthy Italian family.
