Louisville, Kentucky, 1943. In a time of war and madness, a young Italian-American girl and an Italian prisoner of war, escape into an unlikely and forbidden relationship; a love affair that will be shattered by the dark secrets they each possess.
Set during World War II, "The Pavilion" is a love story between an Italian POW, housed at Fort Knox, Kentucky, and an Italian-American girl who lives in the nearby town of Louisville.
The film is based on true historical events and while it is primarily a bittersweet love story, it contains overtones of racism and intolerance. It is a historically accurate expression of the time and place.
The film also contains scenes of intense action, concluding in a surprising and glorious climax. "The Pavilion" portrays a facet of World War II that has never been depicted in film. In fact, the history of foreign POWs housed at American army bases is practically unknown.
