The film opens with shots from the Sliding Bridge of Euripus in Chalkis (or Chalcis) of the Prefecture of Euboea. The bridge was inaugurated in 1963 and designed by E. Malakis and Th. Tassios. Initially, the deck was wooden but in 1996 it was asphalted.

The film continues with shots from the Ichthyoskala district while, at the same time, vehicles cross the bridge.

Then, the filmmaker gives us shots of the building structure alongside the coastline, meets the church of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary and passes on the other side at Malliou Square.

The lens focuses on the members of the filmmaker's family, captures a horse carriage, the movement of the vehicles and passers-by and moments of relaxation in the city's cafes. Afterwards, the filmmaker follows the women of his group of friends in their tour capturing picturesque parts of the city.

The film closes with shots from the Ottoman castle of Karababa on Fourka hill. Although the castle was built by the Ottomans in 1684, it was designed by the Venetian Gerolimo Galopo hence its architecture style is close to the Venetian standards.
