Four old university friends, Dora, Penny, Nell and Moira, reunite to relive that first hippy-dippy trip together to a beautiful, unspoilt, romantic Greek island looking for sun, sand and sea.
But it's not just about going back to when they were young. Maybe they do have dreams like Shirley Valentine, because, ultimately, they're all looking for something to help them through some difficult times in their lives - whether it's with their career, family or relationships.
What they discover in Kyri is an opportunity to reinvent, be themselves, contribute to a community who wants their help, at the same time as having fun, being happy and even finding love. But, crucially, they discover the most valuable lesson of all - understanding the true importance of female friendship.
