A couple of old people must decide whether to go and live in an old people’s home or not. A young student is in financial straits: her mother is a drug addict and the only way the girl can get some money is by selling her body. Unfortunately wanting something is not always enough and a transvestite helps her.
A pair of tramps who live on the banks of the Tiber river meet an engineer who has decided to fight the degradation of the universe by going to live in a shack. A father who is too busy with his own life neglects his son who decides to attract his attention by running away from home. A thief tries to solve his financial problems by digging an underground tunnel.
