Plot Summary

In 1922, with the Greco-Turkish War and the Russia Civil War, the women from these countries find husband in the United States through correspondence with immigrants. The bride Eleni returns from the United States to Samothrace, Greece, since she has not adapted to the life in America. Her sister Niki Douka is assigned as her replacement and travels aboard the SS King Alexander to New York to marry the Greek immigrant Prodromos in Chicago. Nikki is a hard worker and works sewing along the trip for the passengers and crew. She becomes a leader of the brides and discovers the scheme of the crook Karabulat from Georgia with the Russian brides. She also falls in love with the American photographer Norman Harris from Detroit. But Nikki is committed with Prodromos and she knows the consequence with her family in Samothrace if she runs away with Norman. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
