Alexis can't wait to find out about her mother's (Sofia) secret past. She only knows that her mother grew up in a small island of Crete before she left permanently for London. When Alexis decides to visit Crete, Sofia gives her a letter from an old friend and promises her that this friend will reveal the whole truth.
Surprised, Alexis discovers that her family's life is directly related with a small and abandoned island of Spinalonga, an ex-leper colony. She uncovers the stories of her grandmother's and mother's, as well as the destruction of her family from the tragedy, the war and the feelings.
