Grimaldi (Vittorio De Sica), a small-time criminal, impersonates an Italian military officer for personal gain, but his charade ends when he is arrested by the Nazis. His captors strike a deal with him: He must pretend to be General della Rovere, a recently assassinated resistance leader, so that he can get information that the Gestapo can use to its advantage. While Grimaldi initially goes along with the scheme, he gradually has a change of heart and embraces a more selfless perspective.
