We are in Vravrona (Brauron), a small coastal settlement on the south coast of Attica and an important archaeological site.

The film opens with moments of relaxation of a group of friends in a tavern in the area.

The lens wanders on the barely-adorned tables and chairs that are set up in the countryside, on the regular customers, on the orange trees that weigh down from the orange fruits, on the flowering mandarins and on the sparse traffic of the road as a car and a bus cross it.

Afterwards, we watch a peddler (probably a farmer) with his family, who exhibits his products for sale, and then footage from the Doric-style Stoa of Artemis as well as from the amphitheatrically built, Mare Nostrum Hotel (today Dolce Athens Attica Riviera).

The filmmaker takes close-up shots of the luxury hotel, stands for a moment on a graffiti that is on a wall of a demolished shed and returns to the Sanctuary of Artemis at Brauron which came to light from the excavations of Ioannis Papadimitriou that began in 1945.

According to Euripides, the goddess Athena predicted that Agamemnon's daughter Iphigenia would become a priestess of Artemis and would be buried there as soon as the time came.

The film continues with shots from the stoa’s side which is preserved, and the film closes with shots from the church of Saint Georgios, partially carved into the rock, inside the archeological site, and dates from the 15th century.
