Synopsis

Based on the acclaimed novel by Ernest Hemingway.

Set in Italy at the close of WWII. US Army Col. Richard Cantwell (Schreiber), a bona fide war hero with an acerbic wit, faces news of his terminal illness with stubborn disregard. Determined to spend his final days in quiet solitude he commandeers a young military driver to take him to Venice, where he intends to revisit his favorite haunts and embark on one last, perfect hunt. But as Cantwell’s plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a beautiful aristocrat (De Angelis) offers hope, redemption, and an escape from the horrors of war.
