Elsa is a rich and mature widow and has two children, Franca and Giorgetto. Bruno is at her service as a driver. Both the mother and the daughter enter into sympathy with the young driver, whom he thinks of both as possible wives, but he cannot make up his own mind. Then there is Gina, the owner of a garage, who is about to separate from her husband. Together with Giorgetto, Bruno then finds himself following another girl, a shop assistant at the Rinascente. Mariuccia, this is her name, is a poor and serious girl: Bruno tries a little for fun, a little to challenge Giorgetto, who had not managed to conquer her, but ends up falling in love with her and marrying her. He will become a street driver, like her father.
