The aristocratic Italian-Jewish Finzi-Contini family owns a stunning estate. As World War II rages around them, their lush garden becomes a refuge for the Jews of Ferrara, who are being increasingly excluded from Italian society. The family's denial of the persecution of the Jews of Europe, which is systematically taking place around them, is the setting for a beautiful love story to unfold. But as Mussolini's government collapses and the Germans occupy Italy, the Holocaust abruptly ends the safety of their illusory isolation.
