Plot.

When a Greek fisherman leaves to fight with the Greek army in WWII, his fiancée falls in love with the local Italian commander. The film is based on a novel about an Italian soldier's experiences during the Italian occupation of the Greek island of Cephalonia, but Hollywood made it into a pure love story.

This Movie Is About.
