This moving film presents the story of Father Gnocchi and his commitment to the children left orphans by the war. Gnocchi's first passion, since the first years of his priesthood, was the upbringing and education of the youth, by getting them closer to Christ and oratory.
The retreat from Russia was a dramatic experience. Since Gnocchi lived as a military ordinariate always on the front, the idea and the focus of his charitable centre that would in the future developed into the "Juvenile Foundation". He died in Milan at the age of 53. While dying, he donated his corneas to two blind children.
