Chronicle of three Southern Italian youths who, after seeing the fierce Bourbon repression of the uprisings in 1828, swear to devote their lives to the cause of freedom and independence and become affiliated with Giuseppe Mazzini and his La Giovine Italia (Young Italy) movement. They reach Paris, where they come to know the charming Princess Cristina of Belgiojoso, a fervent patriot but also a champion of the rights of women and education for the people.
