The sixties. Strange times. Left-wing Aris and the probably over-imaginative, daydreaming, unpolitical Victor, between billiards and political discussions, celebrate the search for their collective and personal vision and future. Between them is a beautiful girl, Christina; friend, link, Victor’s hidden love and Aris’ girlfriend. Everything would have taken its course if on that night, the eve of the military coup in Athens, Aris, who had already been in the army for some time, hadn’t gone AWOL from his camp, waiting for Victor to give him the ‘case’. Full not of propaganda or explosives but with an ancient stolen icon of the Madonna and Child, for days earmarked for sale. And everything would have gone smoothly if it weren’t that at the same time as the two friends’ clandestine meeting, a patrol happens to come by. Victor manages to disappear, Aris just has time to throw the case down an old well, but he is arrested and court martialled. After five years in prison, Aris will discover a very different reality for his friends, his life and his generation.
