An Italian officer in charge of a Greek island's occupation during World War II falls in love with a local woman.

ABSTRACT
Axis-aligned Italy conquers Greece in 1941, prompting the powers that be to place soft-hearted military officer Antonio Corelli in charge of the island of Cephallonia's occupation. Antonio attempts to ingratiate himself with the locals by taking an active role in a number of community events; he even courts a romance with Pelagia, a beautiful local woman promised to a fisherman away at war. Antonio and Pelagia's bond is tested when the Italians switch sides after their 1943 surrender to Allied forces, as he must now work to repel a German invasion.
