Seven hundred mail order brides--most of them from Greece--are being shipped to America. Most of them haven't seen their prospective husbands except in a picture. Most are making the transatlantic journey to escape poverty, war and natural calamities. Set in 1922, this movie directed by Partelis Voulgaris, explores the hopes and dreams of these young women. Voulgaris focuses on one woman from a small poverty stricken Greek island.
