Overblown, nearly operatic Italian melodrama starring Gamba, an extremely talented musical youngster, here seen to be constantly at odds with his rich grandfather, Grasso, about his pursuing a career in music. Meanwhile the kid's dad, Brazzi, a less-than-successful composer, has taken a

job as a clown in Paris to raise some cash to send to Mom (Faure) so that she can regain custody of Gamba. Gamba, however, devises his own path to stardom, and with the help of local priest Riccardini, he organizes a full-scale orchestra to play an open-air concert featuring his conducting. In the

end, Mom and Dad are reunited, and Grandpa gives in. (In Italian; English subtitles.)
