    Provides an informative historical overview of the ongoing conflict between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities initiated over twenty years ago by the Turkish invasion of this Mediterranean island. Turkey continues to occupy more than a third of the island and has never accounted for hundreds of missing people, many of whom were last seen alive in Turkish jails. American journalist Varnavas Zagaris provides a personalized introduction to this tragic conflict as he visits his ancestral village high in the mountains, as well as the island's ancient ruins and magnificent beaches and other tourist sites. Throughout his journey, he interviews numerous Cypriots and documents the tensions and periodic violent clashes in the UN-controlled buffer zone.
