Synopsis
Story is told from the perspective of 10-year-old Anna who lives with her mother in a working-class neighborhood in 1950's Turin. Her father died a hero's death as a partisan in World War II, and her mother has since put romance out of her mind. Anna aspires to earn a medal that her Catholic teacher at school assigns to the best pupil but her mother's politics and refusal to let Anna make her First Communion get in the way.
