Storyline

During the devastating Greco-Italian War, Eleni, a compassionate volunteer nurse of the Greek Red Cross, decides to take in her family home the wounded and amnesiac soldier, Alexis. Surrounded by the German Army in Nazi-occupied Kastoria, an unforeseen but ardent relationship will bloom between them; however, the man Eleni is in love with remains a stranger. The doctors believe that a potent stimulus may help the traumatised Alexis regain memory, but in the meantime, Eleni's passion grows stronger. Is she prepared for the unexpected truth and the terrible dilemma that comes with it? Written by Nick Riganas
