Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Italian Island of Procida is set in a remote penal colony. Claudio Gora stars as Paul, a disillusioned surgeon who is serving a 20-year-sentence for the murder of his faithless fiancee. Vowing never again to do anything in the service of mankind, Paul changes his tune when a plane crash-lands near the prison. After saving the life of one of the passengers, a little girl, Paul's faith in humanity is restored by the love of the girl's older sister (Vera Carmi). The plot is complicated by a jailbreak, wherein Paul is forced to protect his new love from the lecherous advances of fellow prisoner Mania (Carlo Ninchi).
