The Roses of the Desert (2006)

A sanitary battalion of the Italian army is sent to Sorman Oasis in Libya during the African campaign in 1940. Soon, an Italian missionary living nearby succeeds in transforming the occupation by the Italian army into a kind of humanitarian mission. In fact, the entire battalion is involved in helping the local population. The war goes on with no regard to human feelings. The "glorious" Fascist campaign is going to become a fast retreat.
