In a small flat in Edinburgh live an aged Greek Orthodox priest and a Greek woman who takes care of him. After the priest leaves every morning for the mass she starts with the housework. Every day she carefully prepares his meals, cleans his room and makes his bed. Through the course of a day this observational tale slowly reveals the bonds that keep them together. Although not a love story is still a reflection on love.
