A ten-year-old boy dreams of going to Venice. But the Second World War starts and his family hides him in his aunt’s home, where he builds a small Venice in the flooded basement. Kolski commented: "Through his eyes, we watch six years of war. His experiences offer a unique perspective, for the war is merely a backdrop to the personal events which shape the boy’s imagination and character. We will witness his first love, his first erotic fascinations, his first achievements and disappointments."
