It is the saga of a silkmaking family as told through the houses they occupied. From a grand villa in Smyrna in the early twentieth century to a silk plantation in the foothills of Mount Olympus, from a tiny house in a sleepy town to an apartment in a modern urban high-rise, the familys dwellings reflect its fortunes rise and fall. As communal baths and odalisques give way to movies and cell phones, four unique yet powerfully linked women experience all of lifes hardships and pleasures.
