The time is the mid-19th century. Doctor Antonio (Ennio Ceriesi) falls in love with British girl Lucy (Maria Gambarelli) after tending to her broken ankle. Though he'd like to devote all his attentions to Lucy, he has more important fish to fry: Antonio is a member of a band of Sicilian patriots, dedicated to freeing Italy from the yoke of Austrian oppression. Though he eventually casts Lucy aside in favor of patriotism, she stubbornly remains by his side, insisting upon sharing his dangers. Lucy turns out to be a valuable ally for Antonio and his comrades when she persuades her father to use his yacht as a means of escape for the insurrectionists. Containing virtually all the "popular" elements, Il Dottor Antonio turned out to be one of Italy's biggest movie moneymakers of the 1937-38 season.
