Plot
The end of the summer and unusually high temperatures prevail throughout the country. A small group of summer visitors lingers on Electra's beach. Electra was born on this beach and lives there alone, knowing nothing about herself, waiting. One day at noon Pavlos arrives. Everything appears both familiar and foreign to him. A strange virus which has appeared as a result of the heatwave destroys his memory. The heat increases. The life of the summer visitors disintegrates in strange tensions and odd explosions. The love between Electra and Pavlos seems unavoidable. Then the hot desert wind starts blowing. The white light. Everything comes to a standstill. That last night, the night of the big heat, the place recalls its past. Pavlos and Electra are both submerged in its memory. They reenact the forgotten community's festive rites, the ceremony from the past and the secret murder. They know the blood initiation that unites them. The world as we know it changes for ever. Some of the beach people will live through a new era and a new truth. Pavlos and Electra found their own unique harmony. They slipped away in time and perhaps still exist on the other side of the sea, as long as we still remember.
