A film director, running out of ideas for his new film, gets at- tached to an old man who peddles lavender in the streets: Spyros, an exiled communist, who has returned from Tashkent after 32 years exile. Spyros, on his return to his village, in which he had joined the resistance and fought the Nazi, witnesses amongst his compatriots a heightened readiness for selling land to developers, which he tries to stop in vain. Gradually he becomes totally isolated failing to keep up contact with his children. Only his wife, like a modern day Penelope, accompanies him when he is again exiled in a no man’s land.
