Synopsis

Agostino, the recently appointed general secretary of a censorship board, is given wide authority by the group's elderly leader, Il Presidente, who is anxious to arrange a marriage for his daughter Virginia. Giovanni, whose nightclub is closed down by Agostino, solicits the help of Virginia in reopening his business. While attending a convention abroad, Agostino meets Monique, a stripteaser whom he persuades to return to Italy with him. When Il Presidente discovers that Agostino is using his position as a front for his own exploits, Agostino is arrested, Giovanni reopens his nightclub, and Virginia resumes her search for a husband.
