Suffering, struggle for survival, passions, lies and disappointments, big and small sorrows, dreams of a better life, marriages and deaths, memories and past glories, but also love and the beauty of life despite its difficulties, all that these two women have experienced, picture Greece during the interwar period, the Axis Occupation and the Civil War.
