Imagine a boy born in the last year of World War II to parents who before the war were the darlings of their town. The father - a four-letter man at the state university, his spirited, beautiful bride had matched him stride for stride. The son knows his parents through the stories he has heard about them and as embittered post-war casualties. How to reconcile those two versions of his parents?
