The two fall in love and get married, but she also becomes a part of Giovanni’s (Lionello’s) life, a friend of Maurizio disturbed by this new presence who is quickly revealed as a dark lady. Tired of the monotone life far from the city, Clara rekindles her flame with an old lover. The discovery of these clandestine meetings by her husband’s friend, who happens to also be attracted to her, sets in motion a series of threats, revenge and crime.
