Synopsis Yannis is 14 years old and lives with his father, Démosthène, a stout fisherman, in a heavenly Greek island. But something darkens the brilliant seaside: Yannis' mother is not there and his father lives inconsolably like a wandering soul. But the incidents of one summer completely turn the situation around. While returning by sea from Athens, Yannis risks everything dear to him to save Nicostratos, a fragile pelican baby, from a probable death. It becomes his great friend and the adolescent decides to take care of it unknown to his father (to avoid disturbing him). But Nicostratos soon starts growing and the pair of friends become local celebrities and start attracting tourists. Everything gets even more complicated with the arrival of Angeliki, who turns Yannis world upside down. For good or for bad, it seems the Greek summer will really change the way Yannis and Démosthène understand life.
