Summary
Film of intrigue and heroism within the Italian underground during the German occupation of Italy. Emanuele Bardone, a petty con man, fleeces his victims by posing as a colonel. Persuaded by the Germans to impersonate a partisan leader they have killed, he assumes the admirable qualities of the heroic officer and the German plan backfires
