Plot: During World War II, in a small Italian village, Nunziata is an easy woman married to cuckold tailor Gioacchino. Her teenage daughter Miluzza teases men with her clothes and gets them to lust after her. One day Nunziata dies having sex with an Italian corporal at home and Miluzza finds a job in the factory of the wealthy Don Peppe, who rapes her. When she returns home she learns that Gioacchino died that afternoon. Soon there are rumors that Miluzza had an affair with Don Peppe, but her grandfather protects her. Then Miluzza's village is bombed, her grandpa dies, and she moves to another town to live with a friend. When she finds Italian soldier Pietro wounded in the leg in her house, Miluzza saves his life and helps him return to his family. Pietro proposes to marry her, but her mother wants to prove that Miluzza is virgin before blessing the marriage.—Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
