Guilietta Masina and Marcello Mastroianni play ex-dancers Ginger and Fred. Forty years ago they made their living imitating the incomparably graceful Rogers and Astaire in Italian dance halls. Now, years later, they are reunited for a television variety show, part of a bizarre cast that includes a troup of dwarfs, transvestites, necromancers and a retired admiral.
