Film synopsis:
The Greek sportswriter Themis Giannidis is informed of an impending assassination attempt on the President of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios. The manager of the newspaper refuses to publish this piece of news because he is scared, and Giannidis leaves for Cyprus. At sea, he meets a Cypriot student, Mary, who studies in Athens and whose brother Andreas belongs to the Presidential guard. In the meantime, Giannidis’ informer, Dimitris Kampanis, falls into the hands of the junta. An order is given for the immediate elimination of the journalist, but the attempt fails. Giannidis comes into contact with Makarios, who assures him that this attempt, like all the rest, will not succeed. During the efforts of the presidential guard to discover Giannidis’ would-be murderers, Andreas is killed. Then comes the great tragedy of Cyprus: the bloody coup d’état of July, 1974, and the flight of Makarios, who accuses the Greek government. Giannidis is arrested by the putschists and imprisoned, but when the Turks invade the island he manages to escape. The plans of the shady English-American circles have, however, succeeded; the island is divided and under Turkish occupation.
