Brief synopsis in English: Evdokia is recently married and dreams of starting a brand new life next to the man she has chosen and their soon-to-be-born baby. Her husband, Leonidas is a sailor and has to leave her behind, shortly after their wedding. Their promises to each other go along with him. And time passes, as time does. Evdokia is now sixty eight years old. Forty years after her marriage, she revisits her past through old letters and pictures. She will be forced to finally face her younger, hopeful, naïve self and finally find peace, remembering her true love’s vow.
