Happily married to an attentive and caring husband and blessed with a little daughter, Lena, the well-off wife of the architect, Nikos Mavroudis, seems to have a perfect life. However, her niece's sincere, yet urgent request for help, will bring Lena face-to-face with unexplored and unprecedented feelings, when the seductively alluring young playboy, Alexis Valsamis, makes his appearance at her home. Suddenly, there's the first hairline crack in Lena's idyllic marriage--and what seemed like a subtle enchantment--will soon dwarf common sense and grow into an invincible sexual attraction. Now, defeated and utterly surrendered to an omnipotent desire, the defenceless Lena will yield to temptation again and again, but, at the end of the day, who can survive the scarlet flames of a doomed love?
