Asa, a discharged Russian Navy sailor, lives in the remote steppes of  Kazakhstan with his sister Samal, her older husband, Ondas, and their three children. He dreams of becoming a herdsman and owning his own ranch.

But in order to reach this goal he believes that he must first marry.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
