Brief Synopsis

I componenti di un pellegrinaggio a Canterbury raccontano a turno delle novelle. Il giovane Nicola conquista la moglie del ricco legnaiolo Giovanni sfruttando la superstizione di quest'ultimo. Due studenti si vendicano del mugnaio Simkin ladro di farina. Il candido Perkin viene cacciato dal paese e finisce esposto alla gogna. Una vedova di Bath continua a distruggere con la sua insaziabilita' i mariti ereditandone le sostanze. Un ricco ed anziano scapolo si decide a prendere in moglie la giovanissima Maggio, che lo tradisce con un bel ragazzo. E mentre altre avventure si susseguono, uno scrivano (lo stesso Pasolini) continua a prendere nota degli avvenimenti, con fare divertito ed ironizzando sulle umane debolezze.
