The tables are turned when Sister Bertrille goes to Carlos for help. He is desperately auditioning for a 24-hour wife. His grandmother (Lillian Adams) in Argentina is coming to visit with Carlos and a promised family that he doesn't have. When he thought she was on her deathbed years ago he told her he was married with two children to please her. He regrets that Sister Bertrille's sister Jennifer was not interested in marrying him when they met. When his grandmother arrives she see's Jennifer's picture that Carlos keeps framed and assumes it to be his wife. He says that she is gone for two weeks and his grandmother says she will stay until she comes back. Carlos tricks Jennifer into coming to San Juan as his guest to see her sister, saying she is deathly ill. She arrives with her fiancee Dr. Paul Martinson (Richard Anders), complicating the picture. He is upset by the rouse, but it continues as to not upset the grandmother. Now she wants to see the children, bringing the rouse to the convent where two children play the part. As the lie grows deeper, so does the complications.
