Three young people, three stories. Stefano is a jobless graduate and has recently lost his girlfriend. Giulio is a divorced plumber, has a fifteen year-old daughter and he's seeing Martina, younger than him. Lucia is a waitress in a pub and lives with a two bit singer. One night Giulio saves Stefano from suicide and takes him home. Lucia is betrayed by her man and gets the sack. Stefano stays at Giulio's home and tries to learn to be a plumber; while Lucia decides to become a call girl. One day Lucia calls up the other two to repair a broken tap and Stefano begins to think of her and falls in love, not knowing about her "job", while Giulio is abandoned by Martina.
