When a group of Italian soldiers washes up on a Greek Island after the Allies sink their ship, the men initially believe that the region is deserted. However, they discover that the islanders have been hiding, and the soldiers, winning the trust of the locals, gradually become part of the community. As the Italians, including Lt. Raffaele Montini (Claudio Biagli), ease into an idyllic existence, they begin to forget about war and pursue romance with the lovely women of the island.
