A Thessaloniki refugee district; young Themistocles’ is an orphan, his hard luck softened by the blessed hands of strangers; however, his unknown lineage remains a thorn in his side. Civil war, Skra; the future spoken by the lips of a woman lead Themistocles to the island of Tinos, to great love and great pain. The hero, with his newborn son, Alkis, seeks to find a way and a place to house their misery. They are welcomed by the distraught Athens of the 50s and then by Epikleros, a strange provincial town. From the house of hospitable Lena, a woman of Asia Minor origins, they will find themselves in the house of melancholy Eleni; from an innocent offer they will be led to a place where a strange racism will hurt them, establishing strong friendships and creating unfathomable hatred.
As years roll by, Themistocles and the amazing Alkis, Eleni, Erato and Thaleia, will find themselves tangled in a maypole of pain, love, and hatred; they will experience the limits of offering and sacrificing.
People struck by fate and life, leave their traces on a Greece which hurts them and is itself hurt back, in their search for identity and happiness.
