Synopsis

In a small Sicilian village the closing of the sulphur mine provokes hunger and unemployment. Ciccio, an ambivalent man, proposes to some villagers to guide them to France illegally. Among others Saro, a widow with three kids, and Vanni, a fugitive bandit and his girlfriend Barbara accept to go. When the group arrives in Rome Ciccio tries to flee with their money but Vanni stops him even if he must leave the group as the police is chasing him. Some people give up and go back as the journey is hard and full of difficulties but Saro, Barbara and a bunch of others keep going. On the Alps covered by snow, there is a last duel between Saro and Vanni as Vanni is jealous, but he gets killed. The border is close and maybe the better future they all dream of is possible.
