This is a complex story of flight. A woman tearing herself away from a major love affair, is driven by the pain of her decision to take a long journey. She leaves the town of Patras, her friends, the bar she worked at, her self as she knew it and hitch-hikes to Epirus in winter, along deserted roads, catching rides with the men who drive these roads. Yianenna in Epirus leads her eventually to the island of Pat-mos where the battle to save her life reaches a climax, and feeling she is on the verge of losing her soul she rediscovers herself in the form of a sleeping child. Though hounded by failure, fear and silence, she does discover the true grandeur of love and with it a sense of her own self. Her mind and emotions are honed to such an exceptional degree that the pain she suffers becomes the way to self-realization. Because love, for the strong and the daring, always leads to the most inaccessible and divine parts of our being.
