We are in Metsovo, a mountainous town in the prefecture of Ioannina at an altitude of 1,160m. It is a traditional settlement, among the mountains of the largest mountain range in Greece, Pindos.

The film opens with footage from a tavern which is full of people enjoying their meal. Then, we see a couple greeting the filmmaker from a distant window. As the view gets wider, we see with the square, restaurants and souvenir stores, the church of St Paraskevi and a bus of that era. With a panoramic shot of the whole square, the camera records, from the height where the filmmaker is, the whole area while the locals do their daily activities.

The lens shows us the exterior of the three-storey Tositsa Mansion, which today functions as a folk art museum and focuses on its entrance. The Mansion dates back to the 17th century, while with additions and repairs it was maintained until the 50's, when it was completely rebuilt thanks to the funding of the Baron Michael Tositsa Foundation and the initiatives of Evangelos Averoff, who took over its management. The building was inaugurated in 1955.

Afterwards, with a large panoramic view, we see the building of the "ATE" (Agricultural Bank of Greece), the square and the locals, elderly men who are dressed in their traditional costume and their canes sitting and talking.

The film closes with shots from the road through the car which is in motion and the imposing rock formation of Meteora.
