The film is one of a series of light comedies directed by Grieco at a period in his career when he could not make serious films. Mariarosa, a cow, is the prize in an annual raffle held by a village in Abruzzo. One year the winner is a visitor who works in a government ministry in Rome, Virgilio (Croccolo), and he decides to keep the cow. Eventually he is persuaded to honour custom and return her to be raffled off again the following year; in the process he finds love.
