A mischievous love story of Domenici and Filumena, full of humor and true Neapolitan passion. They met long ago: she was seventeen and worked on the street, and he was a wealthy businessman. The man took care of Filumena and found her a place to live and a job. A passionate feeling develops between the two of them. Although their relationship dates back over twenty years, Domenico did not opt to rie the knot with a former prostitute. Now, to make matters worse, he intends to end the affair and marry a girl from a good family. Filumena, who doesn't consider this as an option, devises a shrewd plan.
