Synopsis

A newly-wed American couple, Sappho and Phil, travel to the Greek island of Lesbos in 1926 and get involved in a relationship with the daughter of a Russian émigré archaeologist called Helene. This love triangle mirrors the story of the Greek poetess Sappho, famous for her lyrics of sexual desire. As the three lovers live out a complex ménage-a-trois, our modern Sappho emulates the circumstances surrounding the passionate death of the ancient poetess.
