Luciano, a wounded World War I veteran and a sympathizer with fascism, runs an upscale restaurant overlooking the ancient town square in a provincial town in Central Italy. He believes he can live his life according to his own set of rules, and remains detached, observing the town through the plate glass that separates his establishment from the world beyond. When a young woman, Anna, appears at the restaurant, looking for work, Luciano hires her, and despite himself, finds himself beginning to care. Before long, among many dangers Luciano faces in a rapidly changing world – including the onset of WWII – is perhaps the greatest of all: love.
