In year 1827, the day that Independence of Greece was declared, a group of Greeks from various areas of Greece is in a Lokanta of Nauplio. To celebrate this event, they organize a festival. However, due to their cultural differences, serious misunderstandings lead them all to prison. The act is referred to an episode that has a character of official born date of the state. It takes place in a hotel and a prison.The places are at the same time the home of non of them and of all of them. These so called 'strangers' are there to create relationships. The script is a chance for anyone to actively practice his memory about historical events. It is about the deepest reasons for the Greek yearning. That is why 'Vavylonia' is always well-placed, always alive.
