Elegant and inspired, KISS ME, BABY is part tender love-story, witty road movie and historical drama. Cimpanelli's superb direction tells the story of a couple on their honeymoon at the most unlikely of times - the middle of World War II.

Love, passion, despair, bombings, hunger and death. Welcome to Italy, September 8, 1943. After being led into a disastrous war by Mussolini, Italy surrenders to the Allies and joins with them to fight against Hitler and the Nazi regime. On the eve of this historic date we meet Umberto, an honest and reliable policeman and his long standing fiancée Luisa.

When Umberto is asked to safely escort flamboyant con man Raoul Nuvolini to Venice, Luisa joins him. After all, Venice is the city of love and she has been waiting patiently to marry for years. As the group of three board a train bound for Venice they are unaware that their lives and the fate of their country will change forever.
