Nikos Kaloyeropoulos, "RIDERS OF PYLOS"

Telemachus, a 50-year-old poverty stricken actor with a glorious past, flees Athens to escape his creditors. He travels to the heart of historic Messinia and finds refuge in Polypylon, a decrepit castle once bustling with activity but now empty except for its two inhabitants, brothers Euhemerus and Myron. While exploring the beautiful countryside, he meets and falls in love with Democracy, Euhemerus' estranged daughter and leader of a group of volunteers, "Riders of Pylos".
