Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a road side restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin an affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.
