A young girl has shot the mayor of a small Italian town. Against the advice of his father in law, a young lawyer whose marriage is on the rocks undertakes the girl's defense. As a child, the girl witnessed her mother's murder by the mayor who was a partisan underground leader. She has avenged that murder, and now she becomes the accused. The moral problems mount and the play has a shattering conclusion.
"An absorbing courtroom drama, a distinguished play." - New York Daily News
