The film begins in 1907, when Ida Dalser, a young and wealthy woman, meets Benito Mussolini, a charismatic socialist journalist. She falls in love with him and supports his political ambitions, selling her properties and financing his newspaper Il Popolo d'Italia. They marry in 1914 and have a son, Benito Albino, in 1915.
However, Mussolini soon abandons Dalser and their son, claiming that he is already married to Rachele Guidi, his second wife. Dalser refuses to accept this and tries to reclaim her rights as his legitimate wife and mother of his first-born son. She confronts Mussolini several times, but he denies her existence and orders her to be arrested and institutionalized.
Dalser and her son are transferred from one asylum to another, where they are subjected to brutal treatments and isolation. Dalser never gives up hope and continues to write letters to Mussolini, asking for his recognition and mercy. She also tries to escape from the asylums, but she is always recaptured and punished. Her son grows up in ignorance of his true identity and becomes a loyal fascist.
In 1937, Dalser dies in an asylum in Venice, after being forcibly fed with a tube. Her son is also killed in another asylum in Milan, after being injected with poison. Their bodies are buried in unmarked graves.
