Alec Fenton (Stellan Skarsgård), an American by adoption and his wife, Marjorie (Charlotte Rampling), an American of Greek origin, live with their two children in Athens. Both Alec's business life and his tender relationship with his daughter are guided by a playful but deeply felt need to interpret the smallest details of the world as significant.
