ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Il meccanico Pietro e la moglie Rosa vivono felici con i due figli, ma il loro matrimonio è messo in crisi dalla comparsa dell’ex fidanzato di Rosa, che per riavere la donna minaccia di rivelare i loro passati rapporti a Pietro. In un impeto di gelosia Pietro, che si crede tradito, uccide il vecchio amante della moglie e fugge in America. Ma viene arrestato e al processo si salva da una grave condanna solo perché Rosa si accusa di un adulterio non commesso. Saputa la verità dal suo avvocato, Pietro torna dalla moglie e si riconcilia con lei.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
The happy home of garage-owner Peter, his wife Rosa, mother Anna and two children  is disrupted when Rosa’s pre-war boyfriend Emilio appears needing a repair to a broken-down getaway car. Emilio insinuates himself into the family’s affairs by proposing a business deal to Peter. Emilio forces Rosa to convince her to flee with him and she goes with the intention of telling him never to see her again. Peter believes he has caught Rosa and Emilio in the midst of a tryst, accidentally kills Emilio and escapes to America, but not before instructing his mother never to let Rosa see her children again. He is eventually captured and brought to trial in Italy. Will Rosa falsely testify that she was having an affair with Emilio, enabling Peter to walk free as perpetrator of an ‘honour killing’, and will Peter learn the truth of Rosa’s faithfulness before it is too late?
