Anna Kastelano is packing up the home that had belonged to her family on a Greek island. She is considering putting it up for sale. However, in these familiar surroundings, she is revisited by memories of her own past and that of her Sephardic-Jewish family.
Anna has not yet gotten over the death of her husband Max. She spends the summer on the island, which has become her second home, trying to come to terms with her solitude.
For the first time, she opens the family´s iron chest. Memories and ghosts rise up, with whom she cooks, dances and picks figs. She finds old telegrams relating to the fate of her grandmother Anna. She also discovers the diary of another Anna, her father´s first love.
But the present also makes itself felt. Anna meets Nikola. He is considerably younger and does odd jobs around the island.
Her relationship with Nikola and the feelings she is experiencing intermingle with her mourning and the moving discoveries about her family.
Anna is searching for a path through the labyrinth of her history and ultimately decides to assume her place in it.
Life goes on.
