A funky, more than slightly askew love affair between a hooker and a homosexual provides the core of this erotic Italian romantic comedy. Angela is the hooker who, along with a few cronies, provides customers with outdoor love. Adamo, is a platinum blonde Adonis who has just dumped his latest lover. Adamo has returned to his hometown to attend his mother's funeral. Deciding to stay for a while, he gets a menial job dumping rotten bananas. He is driving his truck one day when he sees Angela doing her job in some roadside business. He feels an instant rapport with her and soon regularly attends her al fresco trysts as a surreptitious spectator. Angela is happy to know that Adamo watches and goes about servicing her johns with extra vigor. Though the two never become physically involved, a genuine love develops between them. For Angela, who is surrounded by emotionally damaged people, Adamo represents a new-found hope that she will someday find true happiness. But it all changes when Adamo accidentally kills someone and gets arrested. Though she could save him, Angela stays away. Still she is grateful for their brief time together and her new vision of the great possibilities around her create far-reaching, positive effects for her and the other girls.
