Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This curious film attempts to mix suspense and comedy as it details the efforts of Mussolini's Italy to deal with the public outcry over a series of child sex murders. "Il Duce" must find someone to serve as a plausible culprit in order to restore public order and calm fears. While Girolomoni (Nino Manfredi), who is innocent of the crime, is released after only a year in prison, he returns without having his name exonerated and is an outcast in society; his name has become a byword for child sex crimes.
