    In Sicily, 1935, a four-year-old child walks away from her loving family - her mother, her sister, and an infant brother - with a great-aunt for a vacation. She spends the next eight years absent from their lives. It was not an abduction nor was it an adoption. Tina lives in a one-room house in one of the poorest regions of Sicily. She sleeps between a loving aunt and a deranged uncle. She shares her breakfast with goats and chickens while living in the shadow of fascism.
