A character study of five young men at crucial turning points in their lives in a small town in Italy.

Alberto, Fausto, Leopoldo, Moraldo and Riccardo are young adult friends, living in a provincial coastal Italian town. Most are still living at home, unemployed, spending their time together amusing themselves in whatever means, which they find difficult in what they consider their boring town, needing to sponge money off their loved ones. They are mostly aimless, although Leopoldo, the intellectual, writes, mostly plays, and Riccardo sings whenever given the opportunity. The first one forced at least to start to grow up is Fausto, the cad, who gets Sandra, Moraldo's naive sister, pregnant. Although he was going to run off to Milan and abandon her, Fausto instead marries her after his father finds out about the pregnancy. Fausto and Sandra will find if the sheer act of being married and parents will make Fausto truly grow up, or if their example of being married will get any of the five friends out of their inertia, most specifically by leaving town to strike out on their own.
