At the beginning of the 20th century in Sicily. Salvatore, a very poor farmer and a widower, decides to emigrate to the US with his family. Before they embark, they meet Lucy, a British lady who wants to come back to America. For unknown reasons, Lucy (or Luce as Salvatore calls her) wants to marry someone before arriving in New York. Salvatore accepts her proposal. Once they arrive at Ellis Island, they spend the quarantine period trying to pass the examinations to be admitted to the United States. Unfortunately, the tests are not easy for poor farmers from Sicily, so their destiny is in the hands of customs officials.
