Since the 1970s, lesbians from around the world have been drawn to the island of Lesvos, the birthplace of the ancient Greek poet Sappho. When they find paradise in a local village and carve out their own queer lesbian community, tensions simmer with the local residents. With both groups claiming ownership of lesbian identity, filmmaker Tzeli Hadjidimitriou—a native and lesbian herself—is caught in the middle and chronicles 40+ years of love, community, conflict, and what it means to feel accepted.

Gounded in history of the Greek island of Lesbos, This documentary celebrates the joy and the hardships of this magical place. Lesbian or not, this will immediately make you want to book a trip so start saving those coins for the vacation fund.
