Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this Italian comedy, Bissa's simple, almost luxurious life as an eel-poacher is forced out of existence by development in commercial eel-growing. No more will he romance the countess (Senta Berger) in her husband's crypt, and his rival the game warden will be victorious with her at last. Bissa (Lino Toffolo) has a friend, a small-time gangster, who takes him in and gives him work. Circumstances conspire to put him into the path of bigger and bigger criminals until he meets up with the deadly innocence of a certain girl (Ottavia Piccolo).
