After more than three decades' exile in the Soviet Union, a declaration of political amnesty means that Spyros, an elderly Communist rebel, can at last return to his homeland. Yet in doing so. he finds himself as much an outsider as ever, deeply at odds with the post-junta culture. Reunited with his damaged, long-suffering wife, denounced by his neighbours and former comrades, he witnesses the comprehensive betrayal of every principle that he ever held dear; and finally, recognising that his time is past, abandons his own country, returning once more into exile.
