Bruna, the youngest of seven children, lives an idyllic life in a small town in northern Tuscany in the 1940s. As the Second World War unfolds in Europe her life remains largely the same, full of the preocupations of any fourteen-year-old girl. The Italian leader Mussolini's allegiance with Hitler and the distant reports of fighting seem far away. But this is not to last, as war comes to their village and Nazi soldiers occupy their town. Bruna must help her mother and sisters stand up to the occupying soldiers as her brothers are caught up in the resistance. A true story.
