Eric soon finds himself swept into a world of picture-postcard scenery and romance. That is, until his satellite-guided equipment reveals that his most important find may be buried under the taverna owned by the object of his affection--the beautiful and uncompromising KATERINA (Agni Scott). Will Eric toss away a lifetime of work--and the hope of fulfilling his father's deepest wish--for the love of a vivacious and independent woman? Read more at www.opafilm.com
