Two girls who attend a convent boarding school are always fighting with each other. Mariella and Caterinetta cause their families a lot of trouble with their continual arguments. However, one day Garibaldi's soldiers are fighting the police in the streets and one of them, who is badly beaten, seeks refuge in the convent garden. He needs help badly and quickly. Caterinetta, who is secretly in love with the wounded Garibaldino, asks Mariella to take care of him while she rides quickly to bring back help. Mariella, knowing what love means, agrees. Caterinetta gets back with help and from then on both girls become close friends. A simple, but charming story dealing with a sharing of love.
