A house on the outskirts of Rome is home to Marcello, a former bodybuilder; his wife, Chiara, who at first doesn't suspect Marcello's affair with a bourgeois professor; drug dealer Gianfranco, who wants to take his place among the big-league tough guys; and several other working-class individuals whose fates are intertwined in this ensemble film. Feelings are opaque, souls are tainted, and contact with the criminal milieu is, as the Italian title suggests, a contagion.
