Something magical is happening in a small unchartered island, somewhere in the Aegean Sea: Two unsuspecting foreigners, a French member of the European Parliament  and a young economist, arrive in idyllic Armenaki with a fishing boat and become acquainted with the bizarre life style and subversive moral values of its people. Money is out-dated and… no banks, no streets, no cars, no rooms to let. They will meet the erratic teacher  and the lavish widow of the island and let themselves get carried away by the vortex of love and this charming place that has the power to change people’s lives.
