The vicissitudes of an artist-soldier during the second W. W.
War carries off everything: your hopes, your dreams, and you forget who really are. So, in a wiped out Italy during the second W. W., an artist is compelled to quit his stage and accomplish the military service. A spectacular movie, in which Renato Pozzetto interchanges sheer funniness and very serious moments. Attached to the values of friendship and love for freedom, the main character will search to live this experience with composure despite the daily tragedies, waiting for the ending of the war. This the message: never lose heart, because everything can change if you believe it and neither the fear for death nor the disbelief can hinder you to smile in front of troubles: just a hope, and you can bear trials.
