The place (La Mandria) exists and this story could have been true.

In 1938 the German commander Adamo Kohl, a perverse and fugitive mercenary, enlisted men to deport them to a peaceful corner of Piedmont, where the war still seems distant, to conduct an operation that is slow to begin. The recruits land in Mandria (or, if you like, “in herd”) with the load of their experiences, the most disparate and painful.

With the complicity of the women and the families of sharecroppers, in the rediscovery of the value of friendship will all converge towards a common denominator: overcoming the past to rebuild a future.

  • A story of men with complex stories, suspended in the time of waiting and deported to the estate of La Mandria, the Park whose walls still protect the union between History and Nature and is for this destination of visitors.
  • The beauty of the place that, in the protagonists of history (as in today’s visitors), generates wonder and confuses the horizons, to the point of pushing the brave to strive beyond the limit and reluctant to change life.
  • The themes: the value of sharing; respect for diversity; the contrast between those who suffer and those who react; the love that brings to safety those who do not know how to express feelings, and the friendship that strengthens and strengthens the spirits weakened by a difficult existence.
