Italy, between 1943 and 1944: many Italian cities are bombed by the US air fleet. To protect themselves from attacks, hundreds of men, women and children are forced to take refuge in the underground tunnels of a small town, remaining confined to the bowels of the earth. Some men organize expeditions looking for supplies for the whole community, putting their lives at risk. Among these men is Paolo, husband of Anna and father of Luca, a ten-year-old boy, whose only desire is to go out of that dark and cold place. But the outside world is too dangerous for him.
