Plot
The story is about a young middle class Greek abducted by a group of bandits at the end of the last century. While living in captivity with the bandits, the hero becomes conscious of the gap between his own bourgeois background and the popular culture which still vitally pervades the bandits' way of life. In letters to his wife, he speaks of the need to integrate the bandits into the national army. The ransom is finally paid and the hostage is set free. The bandit chief leaves his comrades and joins the regular army. A few sequences of "Maria Pentayotissa", a film directed by Achilles Madras, have been included in a prelude to this picture. Madras was a pioneer in film-making in Greece. The subject of this reference is Maria, a bandit woman who joined the regular army and fought along with Queen Amalia to liberate Greek territories. Madras rejoices at Maria's integration into the army, whereas in Papastathis' picture this conversion is viewed as a tragic occurrence for the nation.
