Thessaloniki, first three months of 1943. Occupation, Resistance, Jewish ghettos Espionage, a love full of hardships, the National Liberating Front, collaborationists, sneaky deaths, hunger, wild parties. The battle of Stalingrad, a turning point in the War. The first trains to Auschwitz set off from the old station of Thessaloniki. The Ouzeri 'Tsitsanis' - 22 Pavlou Mela Street opens in the centre of the occupied city and in the middle of the raging storm of war. And Vassilis Tsitsanis 28 years old at the time, in this nightmare, maybe because of it as well, composes his best songs. He writes: 'He who is born with a longing for life doesn't know what to do'.
