We are in Parga, the princess of the Ionian Sea as they call it, in the northwestern part of the regional unit of Preveza, Greece. The lens moves along of Ai Giannaki beach and focuses on the church of Panagia (Virgin Mary) on the island of the same name.

Then, we watch the filmmaker's friends on the seafront and then shots from the castle that is located on the top of a hill at the entrance to the town’s port, which was built in 1792 by the Venetians. There had been previous efforts for fortifications in the area, in the 14th century by the Normans but it was destroyed by Barbarossa in 1537. The castle was rebuilt with the help of the Venetians, but before it was completed it was demolished again by the Turks.

Afterwards, we see shots from the sun as it’s setting behind the hill where the ruins of the Monastery of Vlacherna are, a monastery that is on the beach of Valtos.

The film closes with the filmmaker’s friends who have moments of relaxation in a restaurant in the castle as the filmmaker himself, gives us panoramic shots from Parga where we can see the island of Panagia, the port where a ship is moored on the pier and the picturesque houses on the slope of hill Pezovolos.
