Meanwhile, her husband Loukas has troubles of his own. Struggling with dreams and desires he doesn’t understand, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to an Englishman, a newcomer to the island.In a village wreathed in superstition, Despo and Loukas must protect themselves and their unborn child from ominous forces at play.
