Two Sicilian brothers, Giovanni and Pietro, relocate to Turin in the 1950s to make a better life. An illiterate Giovanni works menial jobs to keep his younger brother in school, but Pietro has little inclination to study.

Guilt over Giovanni's sacrifices finally makes Pietro graduate and become a respected teacher.
