Two women live solitary lives while dreaming of getting away. Elisabeth is a once-ambitious police officer forced to relocate from Athens ten years earlier and now living a joyless, hung-over life. Rita is the quiet, mysterious sister of a lounge singer in the local disco. When a sudden death upsets the town and turns the local community upside-down, the two women who had been ignoring each other’s existence begin drifting towards each other. As the secrets hidden in the swamps begin to surface, they will have a chance to become each other’s saviours.
