Eleni, a professor of cardiology in London, has been estranged from her father, Kyriakos, for many years. Kyriakos has never forgiven her for leaving her country. When Eleni's husband, Harris, is posted to China on an open-ended contract, she realizes the danger of a new uprooting and decides to visit Greece and make peace with her father. But when she reaches home, nothing she finds is as she expects. Nina, a woman from Serbia, is living with Kyriakos, looking after him and his big estate. It seems Kyriakos has been keeping a few secrets of his own.
