Antonio Petito (Leonide Massine) is the head of a family of street musicians. As the traveling troupe performs in Naples, Italy, the film takes the audience on a journey through the culture and history of Italy. The group acts out a musical rendition of the Moorish conquest of southern Italy and meets up with other street performers, including cabaret singer Sisina (Sophia Loren), who suffered the tragic loss of her boyfriend. Along the way, the troupe shares its love of music and folklore.
