SYNOPSIS

-

Maria is a Greek police officer, single mom and only child. She juggles between her money problems, her teenage daughter and her old mother and the financial crisis in her country. The police station where she is working is shutting down and she has to accept a new job in the island of Lesbos, far away in the Aegean Sea.
Yussof is a young Syrian, having fled his war ridden country not to be obliged to kill, who also arrives in Lesbos, landing in the refugee camp before he can continue further up in Europe. Maria and Yussof will meet and match in an unavoidable and passionate move. Yussof will follow Maria to Athens, where Maria has to go back in order to find her daughter Daphne who has ran away from home.

There, their roads will part once more. Their encounter would have been brief, but strong.
The one who seems most vulnerable of the two, could finally be the least vulnerable.
