Storyline

Eleni is thirty-three, a would-be dancer who no longer dances, a woman no longer in love with her husband, leading an uneventful bourgeois life. Grigoris is a successful economist, a career man who has lived in Paris for so long that he feels nostalgia for Greece and his boyhood years there. When they meet, they feel a sudden love for each other, a love that thrills them and threatens their quiet lives. Their love takes them to Lisbon, and perhaps even further.
