Storyline

Antonio is a young waiter in a huge restaurant. After being fired on the spot, he steals his wages from the till, is beaten up by the bouncers, and dumped by the roadside.

A complex web of passion, lies and intrigue develops among various characters: Enzo the owner; Armida the cook; Marco the dishwasher; Enzo's niece Silvia; and the beautiful, restless Francesca, a sensual ex-dance hall singer.
