Eager to spend their carefree vacation at the sun-kissed Saronic island, the well-to-do Athenian writer, Pavlos, and his equally sophisticated architect friend, Antonis, rent a small room at the house of the disdained widow, Froso, and her morosely beautiful daughter, Marina. But, little by little--as Marina's brother, Mitsos, is fighting a losing battle to salvage what's left of the family's already tattered reputation--love's unforeseen complications will pave the way for an unavoidable head-on confrontation between Pavlos, and the scorned local suitor, Christos. And then, as bottled-up emotions wantdd suppressed prejudice blemish both lambs and wolves, calamity strikes. Can love redeem the sad girl in black?
