As war-torn Greece and its long-suffering people struggle to find their feet after the dark years of the devastating WWII, a delightful excursion to the countryside will lead to an unexpected encounter. Amid death, destruction, and extreme poverty in Nazi-occupied Athens, two bosom friends, Panagis and Anestis, fight tooth and nail to survive, nurturing the dangerous hope of escaping to Egypt. However, an unforeseen complication in the person of the wounded Resistance fighter, Pericles, and an insurmountable roadblock by the Waffen SS will separate the pair of companions. Now, after years of absence, the two friends, who presumed each other dead, reunite under fortuitous circumstances with tears of joy. Is this the beginning of a bright future?
