Plot: The elections get near and there is thus a tireless political propaganda; Peppone even candidates to become deputy. To this purpose, he is obliged to take the exam in order to obtain the elementary school-leaving certificate. With the help of don Camillo and some suggestions of his, not entirely disinterested, Peppone will manage to…
Peppone then loses his head for a mate arrived from the city, risking the abandon from his wife.
During the election campaign everything becomes licit, even the finding of an American tank by don Camillo and the mayor during a night walk.
After a robbery in the hen house of don Camillo, a meeting in the square then turned into a melancholic revisiting of the Risorgimento values, a huge panel showing a “counterfeit” portrait, the story comes to an end. Peppone is elected, leaves for Rome reluctantly, leaving his town, his family, his little son who says goodbye to him from the balcony, and his usual friend-enemy: don Camillo.
And it is don Camillo that makes him change his mind and that accompanies him home with a funny and not-to-miss bicycle ride.
