Film synopsis:
The Summer of 1987. Six friends from Salamina meet in one of the island’s cafes. Then, and over the following seven years, they experience maturation as a gradual drawing-away from the paradise of their adolescent unconcern, and the emotional bonds between them slowly wither. They realize that they are no longer the center of the world and that they have been absorbed by a social system that is deadly serious. Year-in-year-out, their meetings take place less and less frequently. Every time they return to the island, they carry with them traces of different personal experiences that all the more bear the marks of modern social reality. They experience this change as a kind of decay and corruption. At the same time, their once-solid friendship inevitably fades away. In the end, they become like strangers, and a member of the group, not being able to stand the whole situation any longer, commits suicide.
