Film synopsis:
Adapted from Pantelis Prevelakis’ novel and set in 1917 in Crete. Rousaki, a middle-aged woman from a small village, hears the news about her brother’s unexpected death and her sister-in-law’s suicide, and goes to the town to fetch her 16-year-old nephew, Giorgis. The boy grows up with his aunt learning about life along the way, but soon he witnesses life’s darker side: his cousin, Rousaki’s only son, accidentally kills his childhood friend, and a fierce vendetta breaks out, as the dead boy’s family turn against the innocent orphan. Aunt Roussaki chooses to sacrifice her own life in order to protect her nephew, who, in the meantime, is experiencing the first jolts of love in his young heart.
