Neruda is a noted Chilean poet. He is seeking solitude on an island off the coast of Italy, taking a respite from political problems at home. Mario is a simple, middle-aged man and a poet at heart. As his efforts start to bear fruit and Neruda unbends and begins to share conversation and philosophy with Mario, the postman idolizes the poet all the more. Upon learning that the poet receives a number of letters from women, and is said to have a way with them, he decides to solicit the help of the great man for advice on winning the woman he loves.

When Neruda leaves, Mario enters into high gear as he prepares material for the next time he sees Neruda — his ardor and patience — are essentially indestructible. But when he prepares to read Neruda's poetry at a workers' assembly to support the Cummunist Party, police kill him.
