Adoulotoi Sklavoi

Synopsis
Feature film. On the eve of World War II in Athens, a group of young people have established a theatrical group, planning to stage A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The outbreak of war, however, changes everything. During the Occupation, they leave home and organise a resistance cell. They throw themselves into the fight against the occupiers; some sacrifice their lives, while others, like Dimitris and Titania, fall in love. The Resistance, however, continues to spread, and the deaths of untold heroes bring the moment of freedom ever closer.
