Synopsis:
Dawn of August 28, 1944. Chania, Crete. During the Occupation, the German conquerors encircle the small village Kakopetros, located today in the Municipality of Platanias in Chania. In the afternoon when they depart, Nazis leave 23 dead people behind. They also leave empty, looted houses, and the souls of the people of this village, eternally wounded. Five survivors open their chest of fragile memories and remember what happened at that rainy Monday. They recall the facts and share how painful their life was the following years.
