Set in Venice at the close of World War II, "Across the River and into the Trees" is the bittersweet story of a middle-aged American colonel, scarred by war and in failing health, who finds love with a young Italian countess at the very moment when his life is becoming a physical hardship to him. It is a love so overpoewring and spontaneous that it revitalizes the man's spirit and encourages him to dream of a future, even though he knows that there can be no hope for long. Spanning a matter of hours, "Across the River and into the Trees" is tender and moving, yet tragic in the inexorable shadow of what must come.
