Synopses & Reviews
Five cousins gather on their aunt's camomile lawn and talk about the coming war. It is the last summer of their youth. Over the next few years they remain united by shared losses and loves, family ties and the absurd conditions imposed by the war. Through it all, they try to hang onto the part of themselves that laughed and played games on that camomile lawn.
