Description:
  Set in Italy in summer of 1946, this delightful comedy revolves around a father and his three sons, who take dad's war stories a little too much to heart.

Paolo hopes to receive his pension from the trade unions. Luigi reminds him of his Fascist past. Their discussion becomes heated when Paolo loses at cards again. His little boy Antonio faces fatherís humiliation in silence and finds a way to help him.

The war has ended but there are no signs of peace between fascist Paolo and socialist Luigi. Having suffered a superficial wound in Abyssinia, Paolo hopes to receive his pension from the trade unions. Luigi reminds him of his fascist past. Their discussion becomes heated when Paolo loses at cards yet again. His little boy Antonio watches his father's humiliation in silence. With the money his mother gave him to buy lunch, he buys a toy gun and together with his little brothers he march homeward to give the gun to the father, so he can revenge himself.
