Synopsis

On the Greek island of Patmos, St John the Divine had a vision and wrote The Apocalypse. The cave in which he lived and worked still stands, and archaeologists from all over the world have explored these hills and valleys for 2,000 years in search of great historical treasure.

Now on this sun-splashed island Katerina careens her bicycle down a steep hill while her nine-year-old daughter, Agapoula, exhilarated, hangs on for dear life. Katerina is unmarried, owns the village taverna, and lives a fulfilled if simple life. The last thing she needs is an unsettling romance, but that's exactly what she's about to get.

Down in the harbour, the ferry pulls in to the docks. Tourists, shoppers, locals returning home stream into the village - and one stranger, Eric, an American archeologist who has come to the island in search of a lost biblical artefact that his father had searched for in vain. Tierney, the resident archeologist and local character, shows Eric the ropes. When Eric and Katerina meet - Opa!

But the course of true love is never straight, and soon Eric determines that the ancient chalice he seeks is most likely buried right under Katerina's beloved taverna. The Mayor and the townspeople want the acclaim and tourists that the chalice will bring - Tierney needs further funding to keep his ongoing project alive - and Eric wants to fulfill his (and his late father's) life-long quest.
