The series takes place in the fictional village of Diafani in Thessaly. The Sevastos family have been powerful landowners for several generations. Doukas Sevastos inherited the entire family property, after the apparent disinheritance of his brother Miltiadis Sevastos during World War II. The two brothers have been enemies ever since. Doukas rules the area with an iron fist, and holds power over the local politicians. But he is still greedy, and needs the lands of the Stamiris family to fulfill an ambitious plan. Early in the series (in episodes taking place in 1958), Doukas has landowner Giorgis Stamiris poisoned to death. Stamiris had no sons, only three daughters (Eleni, Asimina, and Droso Stamiri), and Doukas believes that it will be easy to push them into selling the family lands. Unfortunately for his plans, Eleni Stamiri turns out to be a stubborn rival. She has every intention to cultivate her own land and to demand the same rights as male landowners.
