The Fathers and the Vanquished
An epic saga of a family fractured by ideology on both sides of the war in Europe.
The four members of the Cristaldi family find themselves straddling the complications of fascism, fanaticism and resistance: Pietro and Flora, parents of Alberto, fascist, and Vera, partisan, unmarried and pregnant. The post-war brings with it a child—Antonio—and an ephemeral desire for normality. When Antonio discovers the truth behind his conception, a mysterious stranger arrives to help him reconstruct his life and those who preceded him.
