The sacrifices made by the three grown children for their elderly father are realistically portrayed in this award-winning first feature film by Nicola de Rinaldo. A family crisis suddenly looms when their old homestead on the coast is threatened with foreclosure due to nonpayment of back taxes. The father in the family (played by Luigi Compagnone, the author of this story) does not have a clue as to the problem. In the meantime, his son Nino (Remo Girone), an aspiring actor, demeans himself by begging for money from a moneybags producer. His son Isidro (Mario Scarpeta) almost prostitutes himself to get cash, and his daughter Lucia (Lina Polito) seeks out her former fiance, now married, and asks him for the money. He leads her on, she agrees to have sex with him, and then he says he cannot give her the money, but another man can. One cannot help wondering why no one checked out Dad's real feelings before bending their lives out of shape.
