Filmed through the 1970s and 80s, these six films follow different aspects of life in Ano Ravenia, a mountain village in Greece which has been progressively deserted by its most active population. Within these films, intimate observations of the isolated villagers' daily lives - work, family life, marriage - reveal the profound in the ordinary and everyday.
