A horrific betrayal sets the destiny of the Alevizopoulos family, farmers who dare to choose a side, first in the Great War (1914-1918), then in the Greco-Turkish war (1919-1922).

When a well-meaning Canadian aid worker in Athens decides to take a young refugee boy into her care, she is unexpectedly jailed and accused of kidnapping.

The Sarinopoulous family has survived a tragedy that history has forgotten. The family is marked by war, fear and shame that cannot be erased by the idle gossip used to pass the time in the small village of Diakofto on the edge of the Peloponnese.
