We are in the archeological site of ancient Corinth, a few kilometers outside the modern city of Corinth in the northeastern Peloponnese.

The film opens with a shot from a seaside shop in the city of Corinth where a small fishing boat, which is loaded with fishing nets, passes in front of the camera.

We are then transferred to Ancient Corinth and we watch shots from the Sanctuary of Apollo, a temple of Doric architecture that was built around the 6th century BC. Behind it we can see the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin, the main church of the village. Afterwards, we see the Temple of Octavia, a Roman worship building of the 1st century AD. which, according to Pausanias, was a place of worship of Octavia, the sister of Octavian Augustus.

Shots of the area around the Temple of Apollo follow and then, the camera shows us the Acrocorinth, a rock almost 600 meters high that houses one of the largest fortresses in the Peloponnese. The camera focuses on the marble Temple of Octavia, where we observe the characteristic carved decoration of the Corinthian style capitals and then, the filmmaker and his company visit the Archaeological Museum.

The film closes with a shot from the Roman mosaic of the 2nd century AD, which represents the head of the god Dionysus and belongs to the exhibits of the museum.
