Film synopsis:
One day, on the island of Lesbos, a shepherd by the name of Lamonas finds an abandoned little boy sucking milk from the teats of a goat. The shepherd calls the boy Dafnis and takes him as his own child. It just so happens that at about the same time, Dryantas, another shepherd, comes across an abandoned little girl that he calls Chloe and likewise takes her home with him. Dafnis and Chloe grow up together and reach puberty, when they awaken to feelings of love for each other. They are deeply puzzled by these new emotions, until one day a beautiful woman, who is sexually attracted to Dafnis, initiates him into the mysteries of love, and then Dafnis, in turn, initiates Chloe. In the meantime, we are told that Dafnis is the son of Lord Dionysiophanis and Chloe the daughter of Megaklis, a dignitary from Lesbos.
