This comedy drama from writer/director Salvatore Samperi takes place in Padua in 1959. There the third-year high-school students declare a truce with their traditional enemies, the accounting students of the technical school, in order to combine resources and put on a show. Carletto, a high-school student, has pretensions to direct avant-garde theater, and wants the show to be a political protest; Fulvio and his fellow accounting students want to stage an upbeat musical. The show is a disaster and leads to a melee in the theater, which the students eventually destroy.
