A touching story of an Italian book seller of Jewish ancestry who lives in his own little fairy tale.

While locked up he tries to convince his son that the whole thing is just a game.

Of course, it takes half the film to actually reach this point, with the first half being the introduction of a bunch of characters who do or do not play a part in the much more important second half.
