An American expatriate hopes to quell his grief for a long lost son in the stillness of his photographs of the Dodecanese Islands. But soon friendship and then love for a woman wounded in her own family-born grief propels him toward life again, where stillness is set into motion and identity might be recovered, against odds, in a foreign place.
"Oderman has a knack for keeping things moving and bringing the vibrant colors of the island to life."
