After 30 years of loyal service to the Water Company, Leonidas Chryssis retires. As he does every summer, he will go to the Platystomo Spa, alone, without his family. There he will fall in love with a woman, Christina. A deep instinct for life pushes them towards a passion like those of their youth. Christina lives in Switzerland, she must leave, they will part. Despite his remorse, Leonidas flies to Switzerlant to find Christina. He realizes that Bern is too far away, he will return to his family. One afternoon, Leonidas is reading his favorite book.
