Synopsis: Faced with life changing news, Maria, a fifty-five-year-old Spanish woman from Bilbao, chooses to take a trip to Greece with her closest girlfriends against the advice of her son and doctors. A spontaneous decision leads her to the island of Nisyros, a tiny haven of peace and calm that immediately feels like home. While exploring the beautiful island and soaking in its hidden treasures, she meets Stefanos and finds herself falling in love against all odds. What seemed like a brief escape from reality soon turns into an unexpected chance at happiness, in a luminous story of a woman, who takes a leap of faith and dares to live for the moment on her own terms.
Set on the mesmerising Greek island of Nisyros, where the sun shines on a majestic volcano, “Window to the Sea” is a powerful and hopeful story about love, loss and fearlessly confronting life, simply by leaning on someone else.
