Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This standard action-chase film stars Renato Salvatore as Antonio, a man on the run from the Mafia, and the soon-to-be-famous Claudia Cardinale as Grazia, a woman who joins Antonio in his escape attempt. Antonio lives in Sicily and receives orders from the Mafia on the island to assassinate a man. Since Antonio has never done anything like this before and is more an ordinary bloke than a killer, his nerve snaps as his morals take over and he cannot do the foul deed. Never an organization to accept this type of behavior, the Mafia starts to chase down Antonio with mayhem in mind and he takes off. While on the run, he picks up Grazia and the two of them continue to try to elude their murderous pursuers.
