Set in Thessaloniki, 1943, during the Nazi occupation, this is the story of the forbidden love between Estrea, a young Jewish girl, and Giorgos, the brother-in -law of the famed composer Vassilis Tsitsanis. As the Nazis close in, the lovers are forced to make life changing decisions. Much of the action takes place in and around the ouzeri (tavern), owned by the then 28-year-old Tsitsanis, at a time when he had reached his peak as a composer. In fact, the film's English title, Cloudy Sunday, refers to Tsitsanis' beloved classic Synnefisameni Kyriaki, one of the songs featured in the movie and the resistance anthem during WWII.
