Synopsis
While Italy was redrawing the borders of north-eastern Africa, in Italian schools, children were in admiration of the events of Italian colonialism. Using a careful selection of sounds and images from the time, the film tells the story of the invasion of Ethiopia in 1936 through the drawings in an exercise book of a small balilla (member of the Fascist youth organization).
