She is struggling with an difficult life as a shop assistant when one day a young count Enrico sees her in the glass shop where she works. She gets invited to the masquerade ball (ah - if they would have parties like this now - oh wow) with the help of her unscrupulous boyfriend Mario's dirty deal with the count - the glorious evening does not turn out well, not at all. One bright moment to this disastrous evening is Giovanna's meeting up with a troupe of MAMBO dancers in particular the troupe leader, Toni Salerno (Shelley Winters).

The misadventures of the masquerade tip the scale for Giovanna - she finally decides to follow her dream to go to Roma - to become a dancer - her real life from now starts. After serious effort - Giovanna briefly finds fame becoming the star of the group. After a European tour, the group return to Venice - Giovanna's old reality reemerges and her love for Mario burns fresh and hot, but the count, Enrico reenters this twisted 'menage de troi' with an bizarre twist.
