The Aphrodite Plot tells the story behind the headlines. Between Easter and August of 1974, a series of events shook the island of Cyprus. The result was the division of this beautiful island, a great loss of life and 200,000 Greek Cypriots became refugees in their own country. This tragedy still lives on today. This is the story of the people of Cyprus, whose lives were shattered by events not of their making and beyond their power to control.
