Frank Stirn moves with his family to become a barber for the American Army and POW camp at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, in the summer of 1944.

Her Catholic sister falls for a Jewish soldier haunted by the battle of Monte Cassino and the death of his best friend. Frank's daughter befriends a German prisoner boy during this magical summer, but war still finds its victims even thousands of miles from the battlefields. Based on a true story.
