Brief synopsis

Giorgio lebt mit seiner Familie bescheiden und glücklich in einem Tessiner Bergdorf. Doch da verunfallt seine Mutter und sein Vater hat kein Geld, um einen Arzt zu bezahlen. Schweren Herzens muss er Giorgio dem «Mann mit der Narbe» übergeben. Dieser bringt ihn zusammen mit anderen Buben nach Mailand, wo sie als Kaminfeger arbeiten sollen. Immerhin ist Giorgio nicht allein: Alfredo teilt das gleiche Schicksal wie er und macht ihm Mut.

Kaum in der Grossstadt angekommen, wird Giorgio an den gutmütigen Kaminfegermeister Battista verkauft. Tag für Tag muss er nun in enge, heisse Kamine klettern, um den Russ herauszuputzen. Und auf der Strasse lauern die «Wölfe», eine Bande, die die Kaminfegerjungen schikaniert, wo sie nur kann. Einziger Lichtblick in Giorgios Leben ist Battistas schöne Tochter Angeletta. Doch dann trifft er Alfredo wieder. Er hat den Bund der «Schwarzen Brüder» gegründet, in den Giorgio aufgenommen wird. Die Gruppe kämpft gemeinsam gegen alle Anfeindungen, gegen Ungerechtigkeit, gegen die «Wölfe» - und plant die Flucht zurück ins Tessin...
