Young Italian Ermanno comes from a poor family. Lena from Poland is seven months pregnant and has come to Italy to sell her child in an adoption scam. Ermanno must pretend to be the father of the yet-unborn girl named Sole, so that the adoptive family doesn't get suspicious. Their plan starts to crumble when Lena gives birth prematurely. While the new mother refuses to develop a relationship with the child, Ermanno starts taking care of the baby as if he was the real father.
