Across the river and into the trees

Synopsis

We are in the second post-war period; US Army Colonel Richard Cantwell, haunted by the ghosts of the front, is a true hero who faces, stoic, the changing implications of his trauma. Determined to spend a weekend in quiet solitude, he requisitions a military vehicle to visit the places of his memories of him in Venice. As Cantwell's plans begin to unfold, a chance encounter with a gorgeous young woman rekindles a spark of hope in him. Based on Ernest Hemingway's latest novel published while the author was alive, ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES captures a fleeting moment of immortality in still time. The story contains Hemingway's great themes: love, war, youth, the passing years.
