A Cretan village confronts the Nazi juggernaut sweeping across Europe. A village matriarch tries to hold her family together. Her grieving son finds a new life in the Cretan Resistance. A naive English soldier unwillingly finds the warrior in himself. A fanatical German paratrooper is forced to question everything he thought he believed in.
