Luisa and Natale, a young married couple of very modest workers, do not have enough money to rent an apartment. After a tragic experience while accommodated in Natale's parents' crowded house, they decide to build one themselves... but not having the licence, they must do it in one night! Knowing that the police cannot kick them out if the roof is up, they take advantage of the darkness to work like crazy... Luckily, the next morning the police pretends not to see the hole in the roof.. and gives them the time to finish!
