John, workman and good guy, marries Anna, despite her dubious past. The past returns in the person of a scoundrel who blackmails her. She shoots. Sentenced to ten years. In prison she gives birth to a girl.
Last movie starring A. Noris with M. Camerini, her husband from two years. A quiet melodrama that tilts toward intimism and deepening of the female character.
At the origin there is the drama “Life Begins” by Mary Dougal Axelson, on which in Hollywood had already been based “Life Begins” (1932) with Loretta Young and “A Child Is Born” (1939) with Geraldine Fitzgerald, both produced by Warner.
It is a first attempt to revive Assia Noris as a dramatic actress, whose name had been tied up along all the thirties to light comedies. Her acting in this film is excellent, but the popularity of the actress was definitely on the decline, so that, after the war, Noris will move away from the screen, except for a few rare appearances.
Not credited in the opening credits appears in this film an eighteen year old Marcello Mastroianni, in one of his first attempts to enter the world of cinema.
