The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea

In a small eel-farming town in the west of Greece, two women live 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 saviours.
