SYNOPSIS

SOUTH OF ROME, 1944. A young couple expecting their first child is trying to save their lives by escaping from the Goumier soldiers' invading the territory - they are special troops from the African colonies that the Allies' are using to free Rome from the Nazi-Fascist occupation. The soldiers are given 72h of carte blanche and they are terrorising the locals living in the region. Thousands of rapes were committed in those terrible hours in one of the most tragic pages of the 20th century history of Europe.
