In this Italian drama the lives of three people are turned upside down when a depressive young man attacks a young woman who was unaware of his fixation upon her. Saverio suffers from unrequited love of Gina, a post office clerk. Though intelligent, sensitive, Saverio's depressive tendencies make it impossible for him to repress his inner feelings. Gina has no idea that Saverio has feeling for her; she doesn't even know who he is. She and her baby live with Riccardo. Gina keeps receiving mysterious love letters, flowers, and gifts; she hides these from Riccardo. He discovers them and begins to distrust her. After Saverio becomes bolder, the two successfully trace his phone number. Grudgingly, Riccardo and Gina decide to help the young man. Gina meets with Saverio's eccentric mother and Riccardo visits Saverio' doctor. Gina tries to become his friend and helps him get a job. Once she allowed him to kiss her, then had to prevent him from going further. The situation grows more serious when he attacks her in a supermarket. Gina suddenly disappears and the bereft Saverio's life becomes gray and lifeless.
