When a war veteran returns home to find his flock of sheep stolen and his family reduced to poverty by a corrupt landlord, he decides to take the law into his own hands. Propelled by the force of tragedy and a hatred of injustice, this film peers into Italy's suffocating class structure, a world brought to tragic results by its own moral code.
