A unique event takes place on an unknown island somewhere in the Aegean Sea. A French Member of the European Parliament and a young economist arrive in idyllic Armenaki. There they get to know a strange way of life and the subversive beliefs of the locals. They meet a peculiar teacher and a salacious widow and surrender to the maelstrom of love and the captivating country. And yes, this place can truly change people.
