However, during his visit to the city to treat his broken leg, he, for the first time in his life sees a television.
The program informs about the launching of Apollo to the moon. So, after finding out about the Apollo-landing, Achilles who dreams of becoming a pilot or an astronaut tries to convince his friends to use their savings to buy a TV instead of discovering love, to watch the first landing on the moon:
“The whole world is going to see it live, only we won`t, because there is not a single TV set in our village!”. So saving their money is turning into a more noble purpose: to bring the village its first television.



The film is accompanied by a catchy Greek music soundtrack provided by Panagiotis Kalantzopoulos, that just gets into your bones and will make your screen time worth.
