Sometime in the mid-1960s two women see each other after many years. It’s the first time that Filio comes back to Greece after the end of the Civil War, during which she’d fled to the US just before her husband, a left-wing fighter, was arrested and executed. She is met by Dimitra, her late husband’s sister, who ever since then held the belief that Filio betrayed her brother and their family, walking out on everyone at a most difficult time. They are brought together again by necessity, as the matter of inheritance must be finally settled, that is to say, the old family home, in which Dimitra and her husband and children live, must be divided up. The two women inevitably clash on the night that Filio arrives, in that very house. As a result, memories of their shared past resurface – memories of betrayal, loss, and mourning, which they each preserved in a different way – and secrets that have proved decisive for their lives are revealed.
