João and Ludovina are a young couple whose love is tested by various adventures. St Peter chooses them to try to instruct the angels about the realities of life. Throughout the story, St Peter himself appears in disguise to the two young people and in one of these disguises he offers John a special sack, testing his courage and valour. But will the love of Private John and Young Ludovina withstand the war, the heat, the cold, the flies and, above all, the distance?..
