Synopsis
Yannis is a fourteen-year-old boy who leaves on a wild Greek island. Since his mother passed away, his relationship with his father has become difficult. During a summer, he saves from certain death a baby pelican who he befriends with, and he meets Angeliki, a wild 17-year-old-girl, who helps him escape from his loneliness. This is a unique summer, one he will remember for a lifetime. At last, Yannis discovers the love that his father has never been able to show him before.
