Plot
: An army cadet accompanies an irascible, blind captain on a week-long trip from Turin to Naples. The captain, Fausto, who wants no pity, brooks no disagreement, and charges into every situation, nicknames the youth Ciccio ("Babyfat"), and spends the next few days ordering him about and generally behaving badly in public. In Rome, Fausto summons a priest to ask for his blessing; in Naples, where Fausto joins a blind lieutenant for drinking and revelry, the two soldiers talk quietly and seriously about "going through with it." Also, in Naples, is Sara, in love with Fausto, but treated cruelly by him. What do the blind soldiers plan? Can Sara soften Fausto's hardened heart?

Trama: un cadetto dell'esercito accompagna un irascibile capitano cieco in un viaggio di una settimana da Torino a Napoli. Il capitano, Fausto, che non vuole pietà, non tollera disaccordo e carica in ogni situazione, soprannomina il giovane Ciccio ("Babyfat"), e passa i giorni successivi a ordinarlo ea comportarsi male in pubblico. A Roma, Fausto convoca un sacerdote per chiedere la sua benedizione; a Napoli, dove Fausto si unisce a un tenente cieco per bere e fare baldoria, i due soldati parlano tranquillamente e seriamente di "averlo fatto". Anche a Napoli c'è Sara, innamorata di Fausto, ma trattata crudelmente da lui. Cosa
pianificano i soldati ciechi? Sara può addolcire il cuore indurito di Fausto?
