Aldo, a staunch Catholic divides his time between his job as an accountant and the parish rock choir run by the wild Don Luigi, a hippie priest. When Aldo meets Biagio and Caimano, the encounter turns his peaceful life around. Biagio is a hardened sinner, a former Communist and an idler, in permanent conflict with his wife Hélena.

He is also motivated by Don Luigi's words: "Let no man part those whom God has united". The three of them realize that they share a dream that goes beyond all forms of ideology and politics: "making money".
