Don Paolo Salinas returns to his village where two local families violently oppose each other. He tries all his best, contacting not only the authorities but also the two bosses, to restore peace. Things seem to straighten out when Agnese is forced to marry a young man from the rival family but... confesses to love the priest! Don Paolo contacts his superiors to be assigned to another parish, but it will be Agnese who solves the problem... by never returning to her native village again!
