The action is focused at the end of the 19th century. Policarpo De Tappetti is a calligrapher who works under the orders of Don César Pancarano de Rondò. For many years, Policarpo seeks a promotion and a raise that never came, and, it seems, will never come. One day, Jerónimo, the son of Don César, meets Celeste, the daughter of Polycarp, and falls in love with her. Polycarp sees in that relationship the solution to his aspirations at work, and does everything in his power to make this relationship fruitful. Don César, who presumes to be a count, sees with very bad eyes that his son meets a girl from such a different social position, and does just the opposite. But the efforts made by both parties will be of no use, since Celeste has fallen in love with Mario Marquetti, a "specialized mechanic" (typist) who is giving private lessons in the offices of the businessman Franquinet .

Based on an actual incident, this is the story of five girls (told in a slow beginning) who are among the 200 women who answer a want ad for a modest secretarial position one rainy morning in Rome in 1951. They crowd and push their way into the old building and fight their way up the stairs to await an interview, only to be told there is not enough time to interview all. A scuffle breaks out and the stairway collapses sending many of them hurtling down in a mass of bodies amid brick and mortar. Among them are the well-born wife of a poor artist;, a streetwalker making an attempt to change her life; an unhappy servant girl; and the desperate wife of an unemployed factory worker. How the event changes or fails to change their lives is told.

Gina is the daughter of a provincial newsstand dealer and spends her time reading pulp magazines and dreaming of a glamorous vocation on the big city. She enters a beauty contest in a nearby city, without her father's permission, and, en route, meets Franco, a salesman. When she loses out in the contest, she is approached by Giancarlo and Rene, pulp magazine publishers, to be an illustrations model. She is excited but Franco is suspicious and keeps a paternal eye on her. Gina shares a room with Mara, who is Giancarlo's mistress. Mara notices that Giancarlo's attentions to her are wandering, but she does not realize he has become attracted to Gina. However, the publishing occupation is just a cover for Giancarlo's real business, which is white slavery---a pimp---and his interest in girls is merely procurement. He begins to get rid of Mara by giving her a passport and a false contract for a theater in Brazil, telling her he will meet her there later. Mara catches on to Giancarlo's activities, and when Gina hears she is only a victim in the squalid scheme, she goes to Giancarlo's house seeking revenge.
