A world at war. A brother and sister. A day that changed their family forever.
Figs For Italo is based on a true story and inspired by actual events.
Dora is about to enjoy yet another family gathering at her home.
A simple question from a journalist who is about to interview the next door neighbor, takes Dora back to a significant day in her life: It is autumn, 1943, in Dora’s small hometown in the hills of Italy. WWII is raging all over Europe and is about to change her and her family forever.
Figs for Italo shows how the past ripples into the present and how it is often very much alive and very close to the surface.
