Synopsis

In a famine-torn Greece, under Turkish rule, the locals of a small Cretan town plan their annual Passion Play under the watchful eye of the local Turkish governor, but things get complicated when the starving survivors of a neighboring village, led by their priest, come to town for food and shelter and are met with hostility by the townsfolk - an ironic gesture that conflicts with their so-called Christian values.
