A shy boy, Traversi, bullied into becoming a small-town teacher by his overbearing father, travels to Rome to participate in some important qualifying exams. While in Rome, he meets and falls in love with Lenzi, missing his exams because he wants to stay in bed with her. He returns home in

shame and is verbally abused by his frustrated father. Rebelling against the idea that he should follow in Dad's footsteps, Traversi leaves town and returns to Rome. Familiar story of youthful insurgence does not contain any scenes or characters that would distinguish it from a variety of

predecessors.
