Three segments: in the first one (Il vittimista) a teacher is obsessed with the idea his wife betrays him. When he goes to a shrink he lets him understand that his fear has to do with him having cheated on her for some time. When he dumps the mistress and confesses to his wife she forgives him while the mistress seems to take it rather seriously. In the second segment (Sadik) a wife has her husband dress himself with a comic character costume. In the last segment (L'autostrada del sole) a man has to spend the night in a mysterious hotel because of his car breaking down. Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

A gorgeous super-sexy Alexandra Stewart and Nino Manfredi in the first episode, which is not great. The second episode, with Walter Chiari and Dorian Gray, it's a delicious masterpiece. And the third episode, with the unparalleled Alberto Sordi, Sylva Koscina and Nicoletta Machiavelli in her best role, is also a success, yet another small masterpiece.
