A visually evocative period piece set in late 1930s Italy, this drama is about one man's eventual awakening and transformation. Oberdan (Ray Lovelock) is born into a wealthy family, and although his father is Jewish, he does not pay that much attention to his heritage. He marries an equally wealthy woman, and then his life changes when he goes off to war in North Africa. Returning with nightmare images of his years in the service, he leaves his wife and home and goes to Bologna to work as a journalist. With a lively new friend (Adalberto Rossetti) and a new love interest (Martine Brochard), it seems, for awhile, that life might take a turn for the better.
