A ragtag group of prisoners -- Italian chef Bruno, British archeology professor Blake, American soldier Nat and Greek prostitute Eleana -- befriend each other in a Greek POW camp run by Otto Hecht, an art-loving Nazi officer. With the help of local resistance fighters, the inmates plot to escape and steal valuable artifacts from a heavily guarded monastery that's used as a storehouse.
