    Synopsis

    In Rome, the smalltime thieves Scinttilone and Ruggeretto steal four rifles and catch the prostitutes Anna and Supplizia on the street to mislead the police. They seek the jobber Mosciarella, but he is in funeral and does no give much attention to them. However, a man called Gino "Bellabella" overhears the conversation and offers to deal the merchandise with another contact. He fails and the whores present a deaf-and-dumb acquaintance that lives in the outskirts of Rome that buys the guns. The prostitute Nicoletta that was with the man returns to Rome with the quintet. When the youngsters propose to have sex in the middle of nowhere, the prostitutes believe that they have the intention of leaving them in the spot. Scinttilone, Ruggeretto and Bellabella sneak out to the car and leave the women in the countryside. Later they discover that the women had robbed their money. They seek them out on the streets and they fight against another gang. However, when the police arrive, the six youngsters leave the place together and they head to the house of one of them. Ruggeretto meets the sister of the host and he falls for her. However, Bellabella steals the wallet of the host with a large amount and Ruggeretto fights against him to get the wallet back and return it to the host. While they are fighting, Scinttilone flees with the wallet to the house of his girlfriend Rossana. Ruggeretto chases Scinttilone along a night of alienation, illusions and adventures.
