This Italian melodrama, with a dubbed English soundtrack, is an anti-abortion platform wrapped in a drama. Throughout the film, but beginning with the title sequence, the lively and engaging baby whose life might have been cut short is featured in many short scenes. The story involves two students who neglect to practice birth control and find themselves faced with the girl's pregnancy. The girl is prepared to have the baby but is under orders from her mother to have an abortion. Her boyfriend, unwilling to face the consequences of parenthood, also suggests one. The girl makes her own decision, however.
