During the WWII invasion of Italy, two soldiers, Charles Delmont (Peter Savage) and Joe Senken (Jake La Motta), impulsively desert the army during a heavy bombardment. They make their way to Naples and set up a lucrative black market operation. Just as they are about to land a big score, Delmont's brooding over his cowardice turns to self-loathing, which manifests in hallucinations and blackouts. As he learns in a romantic interlude with Sherry (Sharon Dale), he is also plagued by impotence and emotional confusion. Senken, a cruel and treacherous man, decides his partner is no longer an asset and decides to get rid of him, permanently.

Annette Russi (Teresa Pellati), strolling by the river and contemplating ending her life, finds ... Written by Peter Savage Film Enterprises, LLC
