Marcello is a weak-willed Italian man who conforms to the modern ideologies of the moment. During the nineteen thirties he begins to work for Mussollini. When he leaves for France on his honeymoon with his beautiful wife, he is assigned the dual mission of tracking down and murdering a political refugee who fled Italy when the fascists came to power. His target turns out to be none other than his former college professor.
