A father must find a communion dress for his daughter in this award- winning Italian comedy. As he looks throughout the city, he ends up suffering through a variety of mishaps. His is bothered by a cop, his car breaks down, and he can't seem to hail a cab. Eventually, he does find the perfect dress. As he starts home on the bus he gets into a fight and the dress is ruined. He then tries to buy the dress of a neighbor girl. In desperation, he then begins pleading to have the communion time rescheduled. The irony is that, unbeknownst to her devoted dad, the daughter already has a new dress.
