Broken into four episodes, this sweeping historical epic follows the lives of three patriotic, fervent youth who devote their lives to the cause of Italy’s unification in the 19th century. Youthful idealism soon leads to disappointment, as the machinations of competing political factions come into play. With 2011 marking the 150th anniversary of Italy’s Risorgimento, this breathtaking tour de force traces the journey of sacrifice and tragedy taken to make Italy the country it is today.
