Ιnspired by Eugène Delacroix’s painting “Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi” (1826), the filmmaker visits this lagoon-bound town. He records his thoughts and the daily life of the youths, and he converses with local artists and poets in search of a connection between the painting and contemporary Missolonghi.
