Synopsis

Marta, an Italian mother, has three daughters. On the night of her wedding, Carlotta stabs the village banker, and aided by Rinaldi, a friend of the family, she escapes with Antonia, who has returned from her musical studies for the nuptials. Elena, the third daughter, marries Count D'Amati the same night; but when the son-in-law goes to war, Elena dies in childbirth; later, D'Amati is killed, leaving the grandmother with only the child for comfort. Marta goes to Rome and is befriended by Rinaldi, but the child reverts to his ducal grandparents by court order. Left penniless by misfortune, Marta finds employment as a dishwasher in a restaurant, but she is rescued from her poverty and loneliness by her two daughters, who have become prosperous in the United States.
