Movie Info

In this Italian adventure set on a small island, a prostitute is tossed out of Naples and so returns to her home village. There she meets her baby brother and her little sister who has grown into a beautiful young woman. Unfortunately, the highly judgmental village women do not welcome the disgraced woman and refuse to allow her to enter the church. The defiant whore then kneels upon the ground and prays outside the church. Later, a young diver with his own sordid past falls in love with the woman's little sister. To protect her, the ex-hooker drowns the diver. Later she feels so guilty that when the island volcano explodes, she refuses to save herself. The story was filmed on a real island containing an active volcano.
