The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea

Το θαύμα της Θάλασσας των Σαργασσών

In a small eel-farming town in western Greece, two women lead solitary lives while dreaming of getting away. One of them is Elisabeth, a once-ambitious policewoman forced to relocate from Athens ten years ago and now living a joyless, hung over life; the other is Rita, a quiet, mysterious sister of a local music star. When a sudden suicide case upsets the town and turns the local community upside-down, the two women, who have been ignoring each other’s existence so far, 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 saviors.
