A must-see work of art, 4 June 2013
Author: Theopan9 from Greece

Based on the novel The Island by Victoria Hislop, the series takes place on the island of Spinalonga, off the coast of Crete, and in the village of Plaka which lies within swimming distance across it. To Nisi tells the story of Alexis Fielding, a woman on the cusp of a life-changing decision. Alexis knows little about her family's past and has always resented her mother for refusing to discuss it. She knows only that her mother, Sophia, grew up in Plaka, a small Cretan village, before moving to London, England. Making her first visit to Crete to see the village where her mother was born, Alexis discovers that the village of Plaka faces the small, now deserted island of Spinalonga, which she is surprised to learn was Greece's leper colony for much of the 20th century. At Plaka, Alexis meets an old friend of her mother's, Fotini, who is prepared to tell her the entire tragic story of her family that Sophia has spent her life concealing—the story of Eleni, her grandmother, and of a family torn apart by war and passion. Alexis discovers how intimately she is connected with the island, along with the horror and pity of the leper colony which was once there.

This series is marvelous. The characters, the plot twists, the tragedies and overall the Greek and human history lecture lure the audience in an emotional roller-coaster.We have to thank Victoria Hislop for this "gift" because she refused all the Hollywood offers for her book so she can grant the rights to a Greek production. To sum up, To Nisi is the best TV series Greece has produces and one of the best of 2010-2011!
