This is an independent Greek production starring Yorgos Voulgaris, a dark fantasy movie and trilogy inspired by the ancient Greek cosmotheory comprising the passions and the sins of humans that influence godly beings.

Along with the great Maria Aliferi, Chrysa Markata, Vasilis Samaritakis,Florentia Bembi, Kostis Savvidakis, and Lambros Koloi, Yorgos Voulgaris’ role in the movie is characterised simultaneously cynical but deeply emotional. The movie was filmed in Greece mostly in Voiotia, in rivers, in caves, valleys and forests only with natural light.
