The Ice Cream Man is a future feature project from writer director Ronnie Papaleo, who describes the project as:
'A 'feel good' story with period and contemporary music, nostalgic, humorous and true to life with no need to shock our target audience with expletives, unrealistic violence and unnecessary graphic content.
Set against the battlefields of North Africa, France, blitzed Liverpool and Cumbria during WW2. The story follows three sisters in their teens and early twenties and how they and their family survived the blitz and rationing etc. The story reflects life in Liverpool at this time, war, work, blackouts, bombing etc. - But mainly the 'humour' and the 'hope' that got them through each day.....
Each sister finds the love of her life... the story tells how each comes in contact with her man and the background stories of the three men.... one an Italian POW, one an armaments expert and the other a Liverpool dock worker. Two of the girls survive today, one is my dear old mum.'
