‘Nights of Cabiria’ Movie Synopsis

Cabiria is a wide-eyed streetwalker who lives in a poor section of 1957 Rome. While she’s managed to buy herself a little house and has some money in the bank, she still dreams of a miracle to save her from her current plight. After her unscrupulous boyfriend steals 40,000 lire from her, and then tries to drown her, she meets a movie star on the Via Veneto. He sweeps her off her feet for the night, and takes her home for a quick fling. Then, at a local shrine where Cabiria seeks the Madonna’s intercession, she meets an accountant who’s smitten with her. He spotted her when a vaudeville hypnotist made her act out her heart’s longings, and he begins courting her. Finally this young prostitute has a man who appreciates her for who she is.
