Sloven, narcisstic and brutal, Vittorio is a small time pimp whose world is thrown into crisis when his meal-ticket is sent to jail. He re-establishes his usual business model by seducing Stella, at first just another innocent peasant girl. But this time Accattone finds himself instead seduced by Stellas angelic innocence and determines to go straight. The ending sounds happy; but the natural order of Italian society leads inevitably to tragedy.
