The film opens with a shot of a boat that crosses the Corinth Canal and sails from the Saronic Gulf to the Corinthian Gulf.
The isthmus of Corinth is a 6 km long narrow land bridge which connects the Peloponnese peninsula with the rest of the mainland of Greece. The idea for a shortcut to save time for boats sailing all round the Peloponnese was long considered by the Ancient Greeks. The construction began in the spring of 1882 and was completed 11 years later.
As the camera turns towards the canal’s railway bridge, we notice the sign with the symbol of the Dictatorship of the Colonels.
At the end of the film, the filmmaker shows us his company, as they eat souvlaki (a popular Greek fast food consisting of small pieces of meat and sometimes vegetables grilled on a skewer) enjoying the view from the bridge. Behind them, we see one more sign of the dictatorial regime with the phrase "Long live the Nation”.
