The movie centers around Ricci, an unemployed man in the depressed post-WWII economy of Italy, who, at last, gets a good job hanging up posters—for which he needs a bike. Unfortunately, his bicycle is soon stolen. Ricci and his son walk the streets of Rome, looking for the bicycle. Ricci finally manages to locate the thief but with no proof, he has to abandon his cause. However, he and his son know perfectly well that without a bike, Ricci won’t be able to keep his job.
