A family of strangers, a foster homeland and a doomed romance. She was a pauper and an heiress. A girl whose greatest misfortune was to be blessed. Inspired by true events.
In 1955 a couple of prominent Greeks living in Istanbul adopt an orphan Greek girl from the town of their origin. They offer her a powerful family name and ensure her devotion. Twelve-year-old Polyxeni is separated from her younger brother. She embarks on a new life and a future that looks bright. She receives an education, comes of age and falls in love. She has a lust for life, while unsuspicious of the devious plan of annihilation that others are weaving behind her back, targeting her large inheritance.
