When Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), a naÔve young woman, is purchased from her impoverished mother by brutish circus strongman ZampanÚ (Anthony Quinn) to be his wife and partner, she loyally endures her husband's coldness and abuse as they travel the Italian

countryside performing together. Soon ZampanÚ must deal with his jealousy and conflicted feelings about Gelsomina when she finds a kindred spirit in Il Matto (Richard Basehart), the carefree circus fool, and contemplates leaving ZampanÚ."
