This romantic comedy concerns a young girl who is the product of a black American-Army regular and a Roman woman who shared a romance in World War II. The woman is pursued by two men who both covet a relationship with the dark-skinned girl. Scenes often take place amidst the Roman antiquities and ruins that have become famous the world over. Faustina (Vonetta McGee) falls for a shady trader who deals in pilfered antiques. She is also courted by her neighbor, who revels in the good things in life but seems to be allergic to any kind of manual labor. Faustina decides she must choose between the two men but soon leans towards the more carefree and comedic neighbor.
