Parrino, helped by boozer journalist of La Stampa Paolo Ferrero (Luciano Salce) and supported by his wealthy girlfriend Cristina (Françoise Fabian), shall investigate about a murder of a young woman, daughter of a rich man.

Also if his city appear like an historical and industrial center, with a lot of rich family, Parrino's investigations discover another reality: a deceiver city, when the most rich capitalists live in luxury surrounded by vices, and the common people live of illusions. At the end, Parrino succeed to foil a prostitution and narcotics's ring, but in the attempt of arrest the bosses (well-known aristocrats and industrialists), Parrino is transferred to the Guardia di Finanza and the Ferrero's article is blocked by his director.

For revenge, Parrino and Ferrero go to Teatro Regio as guests, but with the only goal of taunt the crime lords giving to them compromising sexual photos. Finally, Parrino and Ferrero distance themselves from the theatre to a dark night.
