The film opens with a road sign which informs us that Florina is at 18 km straight ahead and Edessa at 53 km on the right. We see footage from the route of a woman who stands on the side of the road taking pictures. The lens shows us the view, the snowy landscape around the area but also a dog that looks at the camera.

Afterwards, a sign tell us that we are in the Prefecture of Florina in the area of ​​Prespa-1972. We see two stopped cars and a group of people who admire the lake and the snowy mountain Varnounta in the background.

A man gets in the stopped car and it moves away. The filmmaker shows us shots from the route and then with a panoramic shot the landscape.
The film closes with the group of friends who explore the area and have fun in the waters of the lake.
