Donatella è una ragazza romana di estrazione semplice, schietta e di sani principi, figlia di un rilegatore di libri e fidanzata con il benzinaio Guido. Un giorno le capita di trovare una borsetta da donna contenente valori e documenti, e non esita a restituirla alla proprietaria. Questa è una ricchissima signora americana che per ricompensa offre a Donatella un posto di segretaria: la sua mansione, gestire la villa romana della signora durante le assenze di questa, non richiede particolare impegno e permette alla ragazza di vivere per un po’ negli agi di un’alta società a lei sconosciuta. Donatella incontra casualmente Maurizio, giovane ricco, elegante e ben educato, e finisce per innamorarsene, preferendolo in cuor suo al frivolo e donnaiolo Guido. Quando Maurizio scopre le umili origini di Donatella, tende a credere che lei l’abbia ingannato; ma poi si convince della buona fede della ragazza, e grazie anche all’onestà di Guido, che riconosce di non essere l’uomo adatto a Donatella e accetta di lasciarla libera, i due finiscono per sposarsi.
