This low-budget Greek drama from writer/director Stavros Tsiolis follows the wanderings of a 12-year-old runaway orphan named Vassilis (Tassos Miliotis), who escapes from an Athenian orphanage, explores the city, and then boards a train to roam the country. In the mountains of Arcadia, Vassilis meets a young woman (Olia Lazaridou), who joins him for a summer of exploration. Eventually, Vassilis decides to go to the house where his grandmother lived, only to find it empty and in a state of advanced disrepair. To add to his disappointment, Vassilis loses his traveling companion and heads for the city of Tripolis alone. There, he takes a series of odd jobs to survive, but can't find anything that pleases him or fills the emptiness in his soul. On his name day, Vassilis leaves Tripolis and begins to walk down the long road to his village. Konstantinos Tzoumas and Maria Panoutsou co-star.
