It is 1979 in Eastern Europe, Romania - A bad year in the heavy-footed, deadly Communist Era under the Russian dominance. Two young men plan and manage to escape (risking their lives every step of the way) from the Iron Curtain and reach an International Refugee Camp in Italy, sponsored by the Catholic Church. The two think that they finally had it made when they get there but it turns out shortly that this is a very dangerous place where people die almost every day. They make connections, passionate alliances and they will survive this stage, much enriched and emotionally bruised. - The story is largely true (timelines, locations, geographical details, people and traditions, complete with challenges, dangers, emotions, hopes and fears). How we know is true? It is my personal story – Mike Anka, the Author.
