MANOLIS – A SUPPLEMENTARY TITLE TO THE SAGA OF A CRETAN FAMILY
Manolis is content with his life as a fisherman. His trips to Spinalonga, delivering supplies to the occupants, give him the opportunity to fall in love and make some extra money. When the Germans invade Crete, Manolis is asked to take a message to a neighbouring village. A seemingly simple task. It results in him sailing half way around Crete in the company of an Englishman until they reach Preveli. Manolis finds himself inexorably caught up with the resistance. Cut off from news of their families the men finally return to their homes at the end of the war, one to happiness, and the other to heartbreak.
