During the war, four officers, airmen of a squadron dispersed on the different fronts.

The injured pilot Giorgio no longer believes in anything and, during his recovery, he researches other friends. The first is now devoid of his right arm and works on censorship, where he composes poesi. The second lost a leg and hearing, and made a living with a girl. The third has retired, doing business and accumulating wealth. George understands that, in adversity, moral forces support men and offer their own imprint on the existence of each one.
