Mount Athos on a peninsula off the coast of Greece is one of Europe’s last remaining secrets. Access to women is strictly denied and in order to keep unwanted tourists out, visa are granted only to pilgrims and workers. The monastic republic attracts people who expect more than modern life can give them, men longing for a meaningful life. Several plots draw the audience into the monastic world and confront them with their struggle, inviting the audience to contemplate the two key issues that leads them through their life: truly experience every moment and to treat others with respect.
