The setting is Ferrara, Italy, 1938. While, one by one, new fascist anti-Jews laws come into force, the Finzi-Continis, an aristocratic jewish family, keep receiving the young friends of Micol and Alberto, the last generation of the family, in the superb garden of their residence. Giordio is a member of the jewish bourgeoisie and is in love with Micol from his childhood on but, even in this terrible period, differences in social classes subsist between them.
