After a long period of unemployment in Italy, where the post-war recession continues, Antonio goes to the city hall that offers job opportunities and finally gets a job pasting up movie posters. He was told that he absolutely needed a bicycle for work, so he pawned the sheets that were his wife’s wedding gift and got a bicycle. Antonio, who has not been able to lead a stable life and has caused inconvenience to his family, approaches his first job in a long time with great enthusiasm. As I was riding my bike around pasting up posters as usual, my precious bicycle was stolen. Bicycles are essential for work and for a happy future for your family.
