Throughout her childhood exploits, the feisty daughter, Rodanthe, of Kritsa's pappas (priest), yearns for her father's approval without appreciating his efforts to keep her safe under Ottoman oppression. Years later, the ruling Pasha orders Rodanthe's kidnap intent on making her his wife. Determined not to yield, Rodanthe tricks the Pasha, and then flees to the mountains dressed as a young man. After joining rebels as Spanomanolis (Beardless Manolis), she draws on her unusual experiences and rare education to maintain her disguise throughout daring raids. Now, honored as Kritsotopoula (Girl of Kritsa), villagers celebrate Rodanthe's exploits annually in front of a poignant stone carving. This monument portrays the moment in 1823 when brave Rodanthe's secret was exposed - a point mirrored as this story culminates with a twist. Infused with myths and local flavour this historical adventure gives insight to customs that still shape many lives in Kritsa today.
