In modern-day Greece, while socioeconomic turmoil ravages Southern Europe, three distinct stories unfold, each representing a different generation of Greeks in love with a foreigner, each story coming together in the end to form a whole.

Her little sister, Moscha, dynamic and full of dreams wants to leave Andros, to escape the fate of the women of the island that marry sailors that are always away or drown at the sea. For their mother, Mina, wife of a captain who prefers the Atlantic Souf than his home, love means only big trouble and pain. Leaving aside the feelings of her daughters, she conspires, uses acquaintances, and marries them with men according to interest. Orsa with marine and captain Nikos and later Moscha with now captain Spyros. Their house is divided into two. Down lives Orsa, up lives Moscha.Written by

Most movies Voulgaris show what really happened in Greece and what fate does the Greek state, those who fought the German occupation in 1941-1944. Filmmaker old film shows why the British and then the Americans, for their own interests caused the bloody civil war in Greece claiming openly associates the Germans causing carnage dead in the country, while the rest of Europe had already begun rebuilding.
