When Lefteris brings down a Turkish airplane, he is punished by his squadron. Crushed by the events, he then receives a strange letter informing him that his father is on his deathbed. That is when he realizes that there are more important things to life. Thus, after so many years, he finally returns to his island. There, a terrible secret that will seal the three friends’ lives and future lies hidden. When time and fate try people’s relations, only friendship and love can save them.
