Amid the turmoil of the Second World War, a group of Italian prisoners is sent to the remote Camp 60 on the tiny Orkney island of Lamb Holm. Through freezing conditions, hunger and untold hardships, this ragtag band of brothers must work together to survive. Among them is talented artist Domenico, who inspires his comrades to create a symbol of peace during a time of war, and by using their collectice talents they forge friendships that will last a lifetime. Out of driftwood and junk they build the Italian chapel: a testament to hope and beauty in a war-ravaged world. And when Italian POW Giuseppe and local woman Fiona develop feelings for each other, he decides to hide a secret token of his love in the chapel... Based on an incredible true story, The Italian Chapel is a heartbreaking yet inspiring story of forbidden love, lifelong friendships and the triumph of the human spirit.
