In 1943, German paratrooper Peter Schafer finds himself in Naples. Peter has a secret he's underage, having run away to sign up. Within the year, Peter will find himself defending Monte Cassino against a huge Allied bombardment. Throughout his time in Italy, Peter will have many encounters with Vittoria, an impoverished Neapolitan who steals to keep herself and a ragbag bunch of orphans alive. And today, Denise and Craig are home alone, waiting for news of their soldier brother who is on a tour in Afghanistan, while their neighbours, the Shepherds, struggle with ill health, encroaching dementia and a story they feel a desperate need to tell.
