Gino Bartali is a sports legend who with other courageous Italians carried out ingenious schemes to rescue Jews, partisans, and refugees from Nazi-occupied Italy. This film recounts the story of Bartoli and the secret network he worked with; he stands in for the stories of thousands of Italians who risked their lives to save others threatened by the Nazis. Bartoli never sought recognition and few of those he helped knew his name or the role he played in their rescue.
