A lust for adventure burns the soul of Alfons Hochhauser. He is only sixteen when he abandons his house in the Alps to wander in the countries of the South. In 1926 he reaches the Greek mountain Pelion and takes the big decision: to spend the rest of his life there. He works very hard to survive while learns the crafts of sea and earth. His name very soon becomes a legend and why not? Since he owns a pension where he offers hospitality to Greta Garbo, he is involved in the discovery of the status of Poseidon of Artemision and so many more. Thirty years after his unbelievable death a writer searches the trail of his life. Could he be his son? A book dedicated to the bonds of blood. A question that has to be answered: is there anything stronger than family?
