Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Set during wartime, this romantic drama follows the relationships between an extraordinarily beautiful but mentally retarded teenage girl, her devoted housekeeper and the handsome French soldier who falls in love with her. Lovely Triandaphilis is the daughter of a powerful arms dealer. Largely ignored by her mother, who considers her a social liability, Triandaphilis's only friend is her housekeeper Sultan. When the girl and the soldier meet and romance begins to blossom, the selfless Sultan is very supportive. But then the war heats up and the lovers are forced to part. He goes off to fight while Triandapphilis's family prepares to flee the country. Devastated, the girl decides she must find her soldier at all costs and so runs away. Her family moves away without her, but the ever-loyal Sultan and her husband remain behind to await the return of Triandaphilis.
