Chloe is the beautiful daughter of a distinguished Athenian industrialist who finds himself drowning under a sea of debt. The family, proud of their prominent social position, struggles to maintain a facade of wealth to little avail. With bankruptcy imminent, their only hope is for Chloe to accept a marriage proposal from a Greek-American millionaire despite her love for another man. In the meantime, their maid needs her overdue wages to cover her legitimate debts, many incurred when her little boy was traumatized and lost his ability to speak.
Torn between passion and duty, Chloe must choose her destiny.
