Film synopsis:
This films tells four different stories, all connected by the banks of the river. Three bandits steal a cross and, while trying to cross the river, one of them (Titos Vandis) gets lost along with the loot. A soldier (Anestis Vlachos), a few days before leaving the army, has a talk, through the music of the bouzouki and songs, with the enemy on the other side of the river and is fired at. The daughter of a serviceman leaves her house and becomes friends with a cattle-breeder (Vangelis Ioannidis). A couple in love escape and resort to the river, miraculously escaping death in a minefield, and the girl’s father (Giorgos Emirzas) gives his consent for their marriage.
