“Amygdaliá” is a tree that blooms in the beginning of spring. It is also the word that haunts one of the film narrators as a little girl, when she has just arrived in Greece. Along with her, four more women share their fragmented memories of what it means to be a foreigner in a land that often resembles a mediterannean postcard. In this film people, places and things come together and part ways as in a dream. The natural world becomes a place of refuge and companionship for a group of women who try to reassert their identities and invent a new language, out of landscapes and gestures in contemporary Greece.
