Αt the close of the 19th Century, in Cyprus, Vivian is having a wedding dress made out of 100% silk in order to wear it to her wedding with her beloved. Her dream, however, is not to become reality, as her mother forces her to marry a Greek, Kostas, who will become her subjugator. He will lock her in a godforsaken house in Piraeus, with no-one but her sleepless guard, Anargyros, by her side and her beloved wedding dress for company. Through the years, Vivian will get to know Anargyros and a strong friendship between them will grow. On one of their walks in Athens, a city changing in order to host the first Olympic Games, Vivian meets young English baron, John Lester. Their love will be ferocious and will carry away everything in its path. The young woman, however, can never imagine the storm and torment that is about to break… A silken wedding dress, a young couple in love, and three weddings, come together to weave together the most beautiful love story ever written.
