Film synopsis:
Athens, 1936. A German woman named Isavella, who is married to a Greek officer in the close circle around Dictator Metaxas and who is a member of a group of mysticists, falls in love with Alvertos. The latter is a blond Jewish adolescent who delivers ice. Their relationship is iheady, but it stumbles on problems of race, class and age. After their union, Alvertos disappears, and Isavella tries to bring him back with magic. She manages to succeed, but Alvertos is now a soulless person who no longer satisfies her. Overwhelmed by her passion for love, Isabella takes her own life and is reborn into a situation which brings her close to her beloved once again. She is now called Anna and lives in the same courtyard with Alvertos during the German occupation. In order to be alone with 25-year-old Alvertos, in a police raid little Anna betrays some neighboring Jews to the Gestapo. Ten years later in Athens, Alvertos lives with the now adolescent Anna who is still in love with him and who tries to conquer his heart.
