The action takes place on the island of Andros in the late 30s, early 40s. Orsa, 20 years old, is deeply in love with lieutenant Spyros Matabes, but she has never revealed her secret to anybody. Moscha, instead, dreams of leaving Andros and escaping women’s fate of marrying sailors, who are usually away from their families. Their mother Mina wants her daughters to make wealthy marriages and, without considering their feelings, arranges their marriages. As a result, Orsa gets married to captain Nikos Vatokouzis and Moscha to Spyros. The two women live in the family’s home and the forbidden love will harm their lives.

“A woman’s picture in the most positive sense of the word, a handsomely mounted and impeccably acted film”. Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
