The film takes place in Corfu at the beginning of the 20th Century. There, the wife of an alcoholic and mother of four works in a factory. A nobleman, who's fallen on difficult times, wants to marry the woman's eldest daughter and take advantage of the family's meager earnings. The girl is more than willing to marry him, but that's no excuse for him to kidnap her and then argue with her mother about the dowry. The girl, however, changes her mind about marrying him, when she realizes the so-called marriage will only be about him looking out for his own interests. By this time, however, the girl is pregnant and she decides to get a job, in order to raise the child on her own.
