The Story

CRETE — an archaeologist’s dream-land, with sedimentary
layers of oppressors and resisters...

LEFKA ORI, the fabled white mountains, where
people in trouble have fled for centuries...

VRAHO, a village on Lefka Ori divided by water rights
and by wounds left over from World War II...

Fr. DIMITRIOS, following his grandfather’s way
as Vraho’s village priest for reasons he has yet to discover... 

Into this world comes

DOUGLAS WATKINS, mindlessly slipping down
the path of easy opportunity, with no thought of goals or ethics
or consequences,

and no one’s life remains unchanged.
