Amidst strikes, conflicts and untold hardships, the Italian prisoners of war sent to a tiny Orkney island during World War Two create a monument to the human spirit's ability to lift itself above great adversity.

One artist falls in love with a local Orkney woman and leaves a token of his love in the is still there today, and until The Italian Chapel, no-one has ever known its true meaning.
