One August night
After many thousands of years, a cure for leprosy has finally been found. On 25th August 1957, a great celebration is held in Plaka to celebrate the closure of Spinalonga, a night which marks the beginning of liberation for the hundreds of sick who have been imprisoned there. But a cataclysmic event that same night turns it into a very different occasion. For some, it will mean a lifelong loss of liberty.
