The film follows the parallel –often intertwining– stories, as well as the common fates of a group of very different young people over a period of 24 hours during summertime, from the hallways of Athens Airport to the beaches of the Saronic Gulf and the pastures on Mount Psiloritis, Crete. What the heroes have in common are the various problems they have inherited from their unscrupulous parents. Having remained out of the fray, they now find themselves in over their heads, as the sudden loss of prosperity forces them to grow up.

After his military service (1966–69), in the “Armed Forces Television” unit, he re-emigrated and worked as a set, costume, and production designer for many notable productions in Germany and later in Greece. In 1971, he started writing, directing, and producing his own films, first in Germany and then in Greece, where he decided to settle in 2000.
