The film opens with the filmmaker's friends walking in one of the tunnels of the Cyclopean walls in the Ancient Acropolis of Tiryns. We notice that the tunnels are arched in the Mycenaean style.
Through a fortified arch, we see shots of the Agricultural Prisons of Nauplion and the city itself that is vaguely visible in the background.
The film closes with shots from the corridor that leads to the gate and the ruins of the former fortress, dating to the Late Helladic period.
The Acropolis of Ancient Tiryns is near the city of Nauplion, built on a rocky hill 16 meters high. The oldest settlement dates from the 5000 BC and there are indications of a series of arched buildings and a circular one at the highest point of the hill that date from the early Bronze Age. The fortification (Cyclopean Walls) was completed at the end of the 13th century BC.
The archaeological research in ancient Tiryns is closely associated with the name of Heinrich Schliemann. The end of the citadel came around 1200 BC from a catastrophic earthquake and fire.
