Two beautiful young women from extremely affluent families meet on the island of Hydra during a summer and form an alliance. After they discover a young Syrian refugee washed ashore, they make him their project until one of the girls takes their relationship a fatal step further. An intense examination of lives lived without a moral compass, this thriller lingers with precision on the trappings and habits of the upper classes, who act without regard for consequences and ultimately remain unchanged. ~ Reviewed by Amy Palmer
