Two men – two secrets – one war. 

In the middle of Italy in 1943…

Romeo, a young Italian undercover informant for the communist party, is the only local witness of a historical event. But for him, meeting the German paratrooper Julian is more important than that.

Julian had to live by the strict rules of his country for many years, hide away what he feels. One tragedy after the other undermined his will to live, and he is ready to give up.
His final jump changes everything.
REVIEW
Interesting that two political systems of the past century relate to the lack of acceptance for gay love. Nazis courted it in a sadomasochistic manner, while Communism always claimed it was due to the decadence of the Western world. But these two young men, a communist and a Nazi, find peace in the arms of each other. It is a simple tale where the conflict is mostly overlooked.
