Deux amies, Elena et Lila, vivent dans un quartier défavorisé de la ville, leurs familles sont pauvres et, bien qu'elles soient douées pour les études, ce n'est pas la voie qui leur est promise. Lila, la surdouée, abandonne rapidement l'école pour travailler avec son père et son frère dans leur échoppe de cordonnier. En revanche, Elena est soutenue par son institutrice, qui pousse ses parents à l'envoyer au collège puis, plus tard, au lycée, comme les enfants des Carracci et des Sarratore, des familles plus aisées qui peuvent se le permettre.

    Érase una vez dos niñas, Elena y Lila, que nacieron en 1944 en un barrio pobre de la ciudad de Nápoles, y desde entonces su historia ha sido el hilo conductor de esta espléndida saga napolitana que ahora llega a su tercera entrega. Lila se casó muy joven con el hombre más adinerado del barrio y poco tardó en dejarlo. Ahora vive en un lugar miserable, pero su ingenio no ha mermado; solo se ha transformado en rabia. Es quizá este odio lo que la llevará a capitanear las revueltas en la fábrica y a negarse a una convivencia pacífica y modesta con su nuevo compañero.
