Vassilis wanders around in the dilapidated house where he was raised by his uncle Kostis. His mind is flooded with memories of the early 1950s, the aftermath of a civil war. Vassilis' father, Manos, was still in exile when an American woman, Pandora, descended on the village. Like her mythological namesake, she too wreaked havoc on men's hearts. Kostis fell in love with her and the little village community saw the invasion of modern customs. When Manos returns from exile, Pandora steals hei heart, but in the end he turns her down. When a tragedy strikes, an accident many believe to be a deliberate killing, things take a tragic turn for the young Vassilis. George Stamboulopoulos directs.
