When Maria, a 55-year-old Spanish woman, receives a cancer diagnosis, she rejects the solemnity of the life-altering news and instead, leaves family ties behind and indulges her wanderlust. She escapes to the beautiful Greek island of Nisyros in the Aegean Sea, a humble haven of peace and calm, where she reawakens her spirit and revels in her newfound freedom including a chance at love. With powerfully humanistic performances and breathtaking cinematography, this moving story is visually told with ripples of emotion rather than the gush of sentimentality. Intimately personal yet universal in its reach, it recasts surrender not as defeat but more of a yielding to the richness of everyday moments.
