In a parallel plot line we see Nick as a young boy and his family as they struggle to survive in the occupied Greek hillside. The plot lines converge as Nick's investigations bring him closer to the answers. Written by

In the book, Nicholas wanted to kill the man who had his mother sentenced to death. He actually visited the now-elderly man, as seen in the movie, and was about to kill him, but as the real Nick wrote, '...the logical part of my mind told me there was only one road leading [in and] out of town.' So, instead of killing him, Nick spat on his face. He adds, 'In Greece, to spit on someone is the worst possible insult.' He left the house. Later, after a few months or so, Nick again tracked down the man who was vacationing in a city and entered the place and crept into the bedroom to kill him. However, after thinking about it, he changed his mind and left - this time for good. See more »
Powerful performances all around in this tale of a family's struggle to escape the Greek Civil War after World War II. Based on a true story, and with a powerful performance by Kate Nelligan as the title character. John Malkovich does not disappoint as her son who seeks to avenge his mother's execution. Oscar winner Linda Hunt also gives a fine supporting performance. A gripping, suspenseful mystery!
