1958. Diafani, a small (fictional) village in Thessaly -particularly near to the city of Larissa- is ruled by the big and ruthless landowner Doukas (Duke) Sevastos, with an iron fist. Next to him stand his two sons Sergios and Konstantis and many of the villagers who work for him and his family. Doukas who has a big influence on the local (and not only) politicians aspires to create a big industrial factory zone in the village. For that purpose he desires to own the whole Thessalian plain. The only obstacle in this ambitious plan is the fact that he does not own the whole plain. A little part of that belongs to the three Stamiri sisters (Helen,Asimina and Droso) who were left orphan after their father died. Eleni (the oldest) does not wish to sell her property to Doukas and she wants to maintain and further grow her family's fields. Douka's oldest son Sergios makes her a proposal which will ensure that she and her sisters are taken care of for the rest of their lives: he will marry her and she'll give him the fields as a dowry. Eleni although negative at first accepts his proposal. But at the very first night of their marriage the three sisters paint their hands with blood. His blood. After that a cycle of revenge, love and pain opens between the two families and the whole village becomes a witness to their feud with unrepairable consequences.
