A film director is looking for a little girl for his new movie. Maddalena, a mother from the low class desperately tries to get her daughter Maria into the movies.

She is ready to sacrifice anything for Maria, even if her husband would prefer they save their little money for the rent, instead of paying teachers, hairdressers or bribes for her illusions.
