Set in post WW2 Venice Italy, American Army Col. Richard Cantwell, disillusioned and haunted by the war, is a bona fide hero who faces news of his illness with stoic disregard. Determined to spend a weekend in solitude, he commandeers a military driver to facilitate a visit to his old haunts in Venice. As Cantwell's plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a remarkable young woman begins to rekindle in him the hope of renewal.
