In 1950s Italy, three con artists – seasoned Augusto, aspiring artist Carlo, and reckless Roberto – exploit gullible peasants. As they balance scams with personal struggles, Augusto grapples with meeting his estranged daughter, while Carlo faces his family's growing suspicions. Each scam pushes them closer to moral reckoning in this stark, black-and-white Fellinian drama.
