Plot

A man (Harvey Keitel) travels across the Balkans of the '90s, the Balkans of discord, fanaticism and war. It is a journey echoing the myth of Ulysses (Odysseus), a quest leading the hero from Greece to Albania, from Bulgaria to Rumania up to Constanza on the Black Sea, and from the Danube to the former Yugoslavia: Belgrade, Vukovar, Mostar, Serajevo. The pretext, or deeper motive of this journey is the search for a short film that has remained undeveloped since the beginning of the century. It is perhaps the very first film made by the Manakis brothers, the pioneers of the Balkan cinema. Α quest for the pristine gaze of lost innocence.
