On an Italian hillside road in the province of Romagna during World War II, a young farmer (Andrea Vasumi) finds himself suddenly in contact with two German and two American soldiers. It seems that it all would come down to a firearms fight and the youth feels lost, but the arrival of a spy plane forces them all to hide themselves in the grass. From that moment, the farmer tries to save himself… Years later the same farmer (Ivano Marescotti) would so recount to his grandson about his first and last day of war, although hiding a painful truth.
