Martina is a child growing up during World War Two Marzabotto, close to Bologna, in northern Italy. As the war gets closer to home, people in her village are forced to choose between the support for the partisan brigades or the fear of Nazis reprisal. Eventually, this little girl is forced to experience the Marzabotto Massacre, an infamous event that killed 770 people.
