In a village high up in the Cretan mountains, 69-year-old Maria works at her loom. Her enchanted 73-year-old husband, Jorgos, watches her all day. Jorgos finds Maria so beautiful he invites strangers into the workshop to admire her. They have been so in love for fifty-five years. Passing time has only deepened their affection. But something has recently come to cloud their happiness: Jorgos is seriously ill and may die any minute.
