This Spanish-Italian co-production was released outside of Europe as The Great Day. Based on a true story, the film zeroes in on a young boy who is about to receive his first communion. The lad would like to wear a white suit for the occasion, but this is a luxury that his family can't afford. A wealthy neighbor lady tries to help, but her good intentions are scuttled by the boy's chronic-gambler brother. Trying to raise the money for the suit himself, the young hero is seriously injured in a slag-pit accident. The subsequent outpouring of public sympathy and support paves the way for a happy ending.
