Father Damien is a Catholic priest at Saint Francis in Bergamo, Italy during World

War II. He has witnessed the oppression and brutality that the German occupation

has brought to his community. His primary concern is to shelter a handful of citizens

who have sought sanctuary in his church. Among the elderly and unable to travel are

seven young men who stay behind to protect their families. Father Damien and his

force have the opportunity to confront Colonel Anton Fahn of the German regiment

that attacked the sister city of Clusone to the north. They ransacked the village and

have taken everything of value that they could carry on their way to Switzerland. Their

detour to Bergamo to the south has disturbed his fellow officers. The Americans have

landed in Genova, Italy just six hours to the south west of Bergamo and there is not

much time left for the Germans to complete their thievery. Father Damien organizes

the resistance to the German’s encroachment on their town and prays for deliverance

by the Americans.
