In Italy, during 1943, two men collide during the bombing of the Nazis and American allies. Antonio Capurro is a thief who disguises himself as a priest for the robberies at the train stations; Vittorio Cotone is a carabinieri marshal upright who's chasing Antonio, and that in the end, to a misunderstanding, he is forced to do so by Marshal dress. Antonio is excited about the new appointment, and Vittorio meanwhile disguises himself as a priest. In fact the two, in the days of the Badoglio Proclamation, are persecuted by the Nazis and fascists because they're hiding a partisan, a Jewish girl and an American soldier who is planning the Allied landing.
