Summary :

Somewhere on Earth is setting sail for the Aegean Sea. A natural boundary between Europe and the Near East, this interior sea of the Mediterranean Basin has been inhabited since prehistoric times. An unpredictible sea surrounded by rugged mountains, it has given birth to great myths and fired many an imagination.

Peter Nicolaides is a collector of tales. Fascinated by the ruins and legends of the Cyclades, he has appointed himself guardian of these treasures. He’s constantly discovering relics and works tirelessly toward creating Maritime Protected Areas.

Hortense Le Calvez left her native france to lead a nomadic life. On board her sailboat, she follows the whims of the sea. This artist has created a world of her own, a dream world where the earthly laws of gravity have given way to poetry.

Michaelis Styllas, an accomplished climber, has found his equilibrium on the most mythical of mountains. He lives year-round on the peaks of Mount Olympus, abode of the Ancient Greek gods, where unspoiled Nature guides his footsteps and nourishes his soul.
