Ilias Apostolou, a young furrier who has had a hard time under the dictatorship, leaves Castoria in 1971 to immigrate to France, where he hopes to join a distant relative of his, Gerassimos Tzivas, who has been living there since 1950. With him, he takes nothing from his homeland but a photograph of a person that he finds on the pavement. After arriving in Paris he asks Gerassimos to help him in finding work there but a misunderstanding around the photograph occurs, setting off a series of dramatic events.

The film was an official participation at the Thessaloniki Film Festival (1986) and at the Directors’ Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival (1987).
