The story of an Italian immigrant, a widower living alone with his memories, his Bible, and Dante, which he learned to read in English. In this black and white film from 1966 he talks about his past, his children, and of good times and bad. What he tells and what the camera shows of his life make a warm, human portrait of an aging man who chooses freedom and independence even though it sometimes means solitude.
