Synopsis

Based on some historical events, the film gives a romanticized biography of Theodoros Kolokotronis, a Greek historical hero serving as a metaphor for Greece herself. Based on a circular view of history, the film presents conflicting ideologies – primitive communism, anarchism, chiefdom or kingdom, personality cult – and shows the institutions of property and power in a bad light.
