Storyboard- Camp Arrival

In 1943, thousands of Italian prisoners of war captured in North Africa were held in internment camps in the United States. Due to the severe manpower shortage all the American men and boys were off fighting - the Italians were employed as laborers on farms, in factories and on the roads. Despite prohibition of personal contact between the prisoners and locals in a time of prejudice and fear, many prisoners met and fell in love with local American Girls.
