Plot
Two brothers, Stelios and Yannis, grow up in a mining village. Α world of rust and stone and earth tremors from underground explosions. The father is a miner. The mother is dead. Stelios, the eldest is independent, instinctive, impulsive. The place isn't big enough to hold him. He leaves. Later he deserts from the army, disappears in the waters of the lake near the border. He is considered dead. The youngest, Yannis, is dependent on his older brother, scared. He ends up a police sergeant in the city, "hiding" behind his uniform.
Forged seamen's paper in the hands of an illegal immigrant arrested by Yannis: the father's name, the village... Stelios' photograph listed on the security police computers. Stelios may be alive.
Pablo Murillo, or Leonardo... a radio operator on some freighter, changing names, Stelios is everywhere and nowhere. Yannis goes out to look for him and ends up an outlaw himself.
Stelios' tracks lead Yannis along his own personal route. He becomes independent, hides, follows the dictates of his heart, leaves it all behind, loses any identity he may have had. Searches for a new one.
