This drama is set in Italy in 1938, when Mussolinis anti-Semitic edicts began to isolate the Jews from their communities. As the political atmosphere becomes increasingly hostile to Jewish citizens the handsome and carefree children of a cultured Jewish family, the Finzi-Continis, turn their home into a refuge for their young friends. In an atmosphere of emotional instability, they play out hearbreaking romantic rituals which spiral into tragedy as Fascism gradually descends upon their world.
