Two brothers living in Latina, Italy, grow up against the backdrop of the tumultuous Years of Lead (Anni di piombo). Manrico Benassi (Riccardo Scamarcio) joins the Communist Party, while his impressionable younger brother, Accio (Elio Germano), returns from seminary school a full-blooded Fascist. As the years wear on, Accio and Manrico’s family loyalty is tested by their political differences and their dueling loves for Francesca (Diane Fieri), a compassionate and intelligent activist.
