This flawed social and political drama by Denetris Mavrikios is about a village widow named Anna whose life is that much more difficult due to the traditions and the society around her. Anna is in love with Yannis, a young working man whom she herself cannot marry, and so she arranges a marriage between her stepdaughter and Yannis. Then life gets complicated because Anna's unscrupulous neighbor Cosmos wants to buy up her property and that of another neighbor in order to build a hotel and cash in on the growing tourist business. Much to Anna's chagrin, Cosmos has the means to strong-arm Yannis into forcing her to sell him her house.
