Plot summary[edit]

Totonno is the leader of a gang of Italian workers who for years has been in West Germany. The group picks up rags and second hand cloths, marketing them to customers for sheer fabric with which to sew clothes. The work is dishonest, and in fact the customers realize it soon. When Totonno and his gang flee to another city in Germany, the group encounters a band of Poles, who're doing the same dirty work.
