Beginning of last century in the heart of Thessaly. A new era dawns for the people of the plains. The crofters become householders, ideas travel and more easily take root in the souls of people and young people dream of their own, different future. Trikala Ntakaioi and Voliotes Roumpaioi mingle in the middle of a courtyard pond, full of secrets and moons in the water. Paschalis’ passionate love of the sea and Filitsa will be reborn through children and grandchildren, stronger, guilty and sinful. Paschalis and Filitsa, and along after them, Leno, the Vaitsa, Andreas, Constance, Angela, Linos and unique Zabeta will fit an amazing story. With a backdrop of fights with the enemies and with the life-giving earth, the hunger and the poverty that makes dreams grow, their life will unfold.
Life full of love, lust, jealousy and guilt. Life that sometimes looks glamorous and sometimes looks scattered, like the moon that sometimes is mirrored in calm waters and sometimes looks broken into rough waters.
