Maurizio and Giovanni are two 40-year-old friends. They both grew up together in the country around Carrara. Maurizio invested all his money in a marble quarry. Giovanni, less ambitious, leads a dull life with his wife Luisa and his young daughter, Angela. Maurizio and Giovanni are keen on hunting and they're out in the woods of Lunigiana whenever they can. The friendship changes when Maurizio meets Clara, a charming young woman. Maurizio and Clara fall in love and finally get married. But after marriage things begin to change; Maurizio works hard in the quarry to resolve several problems and Clara spend her days lonely and bored. Life in the countryside is not as attractive as it seemed before she moved out here. Slowly she begins spending time with Giovanni, and he is not adverse to her charm. The triangular relationship becomes complicated.
