Plot summary

Peppino and his family move into a "brothel", i.e. an apartment inhabited by a group of prostitutes in the ancient streets of Rome. One of the girls mysteriously died, and so the house was bought by the family just in time for Peppino, who is forced to share with another family. Because of the gossips of the city and the neighborhood, in a short time Peppino's family falls into disgrace. Peppino, not knowing what to do as a father, comes to discover that his daughter has serious problems with her boyfriend.
