Magnani meets a pair of pickpockets, Toto and Gazzara, who try to get rid of her before they prey on a wealthy American (Clark). Clark becomes interested in her, but his drunkeness results in his trying to jump in the Trevi Fountain where he is arrested. Later Gazzara steals a necklace

from a Madonna statue, but it is Magnani who is arrested. She serves a short jail term and finds Toto waiting for her. A fine comedy which owes much to Monicelli's fresh direction, a superb cast, and the source material by Alberto Moravia.
