Synopsis
In this unconventional comedy, filmed in Ikaria, a French member of the European Parliament and his assistant, a Greek economist, end up in Armenaki, an islet lost somewhere in the Aegean Sea. They are there in an official political mission and obstinate to finish the work as soon as possible. However, the place and its residents are said to be miraculous and able to change people's lives. A spiral of unforeseen events we'll not let them go and force both to reconsider their way of thinking and living. They meet with a visionary teacher and a rugged widow and let themselves get carried away by the vortex of love. They finally decide to live in freedom.

Without roads, money or banks Armenaki is a paradise for easy-going, flirtatious, fun-loving people. A comedy full of summer, a healthy amount of madness, love and passion for life.
