In this amusing comedy by director Vittorio Caprioli, comedienne Franca Valeri is Delia, a prostitute who has lived all her life in the city of Rome and is now thinking of looking for greener, prettier pastures. Her idea of an idyllic city is Paris where her brother lives and works at the moment. She finally gets herself together and heads out to the City of Light with high expectations. But once there, with the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame and all the city's attractions in full view, she begins to see that there is a flip side to life in Paris. When she meets up with a compatriot, her desire to get back to Rome is all the greater.
