Their tranquility is shattered by the crash of a bullet-riddled enemy plane, the arrival of grandmothers friend Mr. Girandolea man who knows the true story of Cinderellas slipperand the discovery of a riddle in the sacred grove of ruins behind grandmothers house. In a sumptuous idyllic setting and overshadowed by the threat of war, four unlikely allies learn the values of courage and sacrifice.
