The Gestapo is on his trail, but he manages to finds shelter in a priest's house while the workman is arrested and his woman gets killed by a volley of bullets. The information was given by Marina, a cocaine addict actress that in the past had had a relationship with Manfredi and that now is with a German officer. Thanks to this, the Gestapo caught the engineer and the priest. Manfredi, even under torture, does not give the name of his comrades, while the priest is executed by a firing squad after receiving the farewell by the kids of his parish. The movie is based on a true story: Don Morosini was killed by the Germans in Rome after he joined the Resistance.
