The story is set in a small harbor in the southern Peloponnese. Iordanis Kyroglou is a man of great power and a preacher in the Masonic lodge. Along with Yatrakos, his collaborator and police chief, he tries to collect information on the arrival of the cargo ship “Naomi”, which is carrying wheat from Panama to Israel. In anticipation of this ship, the stories of the main characters unfold: Abdullah Al Fakir, the leader of the Palestinian commandos; Sarah Ben Sussan, the Jewish daughter of Kyroglou; Kurt, leader of a Neo-Nazi group; the publisher of the local newspaper; and 17 young women who have arrived from the turbulent Balkans in search of a new homeland.
