Plot Summary

Under the cloudless summer sky--against the backdrop of a derelict mansion ravaged by death, hate, and shame in post-Greek-Civil-War Hydra--a silently sinister undercurrent of intense rivalry among men unfolds. Eager to spend their carefree vacation at the sun-kissed Saronic island, well-to-do Athenian writer Pavlos, and his equally sophisticated architect friend Antonis rent a small room at the house of disdained widow Froso and her morosely-beautiful daughter Marina. But, little by little--as Marina's brother Mitsos is fighting a losing battle to salvage what's left of the family's already-tattered reputation--love's unforeseen complications pave the way for an unavoidable head-on confrontation between Pavlos and scorned local suitor Christos. As bottled-up emotions and suppressed prejudice blemish both lambs and wolves, calamity strikes. Can love redeem the sad girl in black? Written by Nick Riganas
