Writer George Zampelis, after a rather awkward and failed lecture on his birthday, returns disappointed to his home island, Zakynthos. There his mother informs him that Alcestes, his youthful love is back on the island. George searches for her but instead meets and connects with a young actress, Anna whom he identifies with Alcestes. With her he will overcome the crisis of creativity that haunted him for a long time. The solution to his impasse will be gradually found through the revival of the past and through memory flashbacks as he meets again old acquaintances.
