Perantoni is a Polish born Italian national with dual citizenship living in Lwów, Poland. In the 1930s Vittorio
(Victor) and his older brother Luigi work with their father, Carlo Perantoni, at operating the family’s successful
winery-pasta tavern, and managing their import business of wine sales and distributing wine from Italy.
But the Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland change all of that. When the Italian
Consulate orders Italian nationals to evacuate Poland, the Perantoni family is suddenly forced to leave their considerable
wealth behind. Victor’s girlfriends will also be left behind as
he flees to Switzerland to avoid Italy's Fascist
Left too are his Polish friends André, Franki,
and 'Padre.' All these persons will be scattered as they face the fears, hardships, and physical abuses of World War Two.
The war drags on and Europe burns.
His Polish friends André and Franki are arrested and routed to Siberia, but then commandeered into the new Allied
Army of General Wladyslaw Anders; his girlfriend Dani faces deportation to a Nazi death camp; and Vittorio too is nearly captured
both sides of enemy lines all are wondering: will life ever be the same again?
War of Lions” will show you life during World War II through the eyes of the Perantoni family. You will see
it as you have never seen it before, and you will be gratified by numerous incidents where Nazi Wehrmacht leaders and Soviet
had been outwitted by guile and fearlessness.
The originality of our story is fantastic. It gives a fresh view on World
War II from a perspective that hasn’t been seen before. It focuses on the people, not the armies,
a very unique and positive perspective with which to view this era.
With great misfortune, you will see the Perantoni family's native hometown
in Italy, Volargne di Dolcé, literally disappear in one instant! Completely blown to dust and rubble from an
enormous explosion caused by the murderous negligence of Albert Speer's Nazi Engineers, and then simply reported
as a military accident.
