The mother has an overly possessive relationship to the child, causing in “Didino” a strong Oedipal complex and, above all, a great difficulty in establishing normal relations with the other sex. His situation is aggravated by the sentences of Uncle Alberto, who urges his nephew to follow his true nature, firmly convinced that he is a homosexual. The accidental death of the elderly housekeeper Driade determines the entry into the estate of the new maid Angela, a young limping girl, of whom “Didino” falls in love. Between the two it is born a relationship, hampered however from the mother that does not accept to surrender the child to another woman. One night, Dino and Angela make love in front of their mother, who is ill, in the meantime the two, not caring for the sudden malaise of the woman, continue to exchange effusions. When Fernando finally decides to leave home to live with his beloved, the mother pretends to approve of his will and while helping him in the last bathroom before departure he drowns him in a thousand soap bubbles.
