1948-1949: An American journalist is murdered in Thessaloniki. The government is upset and foreigners intervene. An innocent man is imprisoned. The case closes.
Seventy years after the assassination of George Polk, a theatrical play gives voice to the faces of the drama that shocked the country. During the pernicious civil war, hunters and hunted, victims and victimizers, Pontian mothers, sneaky American women, merciless lawyers, police and spies unravel the thread of the case, in a group of narratives. And against them, there is a whole city, watching and commenting on facts. Some faces of History and some next door faces discourse and collide. Because History (with a capital H) is made up of people’s stories. An innocent man’s fate is judged by broken truths and powerful lies. And everything, always and everywhere, is decided “pro patria”. We can lose a man if it is to save a country.
