In the summer of 1949 the civil war in Greece comes to its bitter end. One of the last active rebel groups of the left wing Democratic Army is forced to leave Taygetos mountain and move towards the coast. During this hopeless long road, the rebels would fall one after another under the fire of the National Army and the armed villagers while the beautiful natural setting seems indifferent concerning the fate of the persecuted fighters.
