Donnie is in the Navy. His job is to clean the toilets all night long. He finally gets a break when the sun rises. He likes to go look at it. The sun looks beautiful on the ocean. That’s when he thinks of his girl Maria. She is Italian. He goes to the Navy so he gets respect from Maria’s father. Donnie is a drinker. He is a trouble maker, always at the wrong place at the wrong time. He has to do right by Maria.
After he gets discharged he will marry Maria and they will own a soda shop. They will have 4 boys and they will work at the shop, too. They have a good life together. When they get old, the boys will take over the shop and Donnie and Maria will live on a boat and look at the sunset's together.
