Ioanna Karystiani’s award-winning novel is brought to vivid life in this enthralling drama of passion, family, and loss. Set on the island of Andros in the 1930s and 40s, it is the story of two sisters who spend their lives in love with the same man. Impeccably acted and filmed in the actual homes of the island’s shipping families, the film pays tribute to the incredibly strong women who sustained their families while their husbands went off to sea. The film won six 2014 Hellenic Film Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
