Marcello (Baldwin), a young writer, loves Anna (Demongeot), a femme fatale-ish beauty who can't remain faithful to any man for very long. Anna has her sights set on a movie career. However, she only seems to be able to secure parts in low-brow peplum films.

Marcello is frustrated by Anna's capricious nature, while he himself is involved with two other women, Fulvia (Martinelli) and Eleonora (Perschy). At one point, Marcello even proposes to Eleonora but is unable to follow it through.
