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).
Theodore, the patriarch, was given a significant plot of fertile farmland in the Peloponnese for his efforts to fight the Ottomans in the Cretan revolution (1886-1896). After he dies, it is Callidora; the matriarch who must protect this legacy, raising her children to ensure the land is passed down from one generation to the next. But will the treacherous schemes of a neighbor ever allow this to happen? Survival might mean leaving what is most precious: home.
