A war hero, a retired army general called Lambros Dekavalas, is living a decent life, forgotten by history, supporting his family with the souvenirs of his glory and a meager pension. When his Country, through the Minister himself, decides to honour him, the conscientious and nave citizen Dekavalas takes a rough landing from his battle steed, into a country of crooks and racketeers. Who took on the 'project' of restoring this hero? What is the honor of the honorary event? Where did the millions for the statue end up? Between the brilliantly lit square named 'Lambros Dekavalas' and the dark house of our hero where the electricity has been cut off, Sakellariou and Giannakopoulos establish a typically Greek comedy, with delightful characters and scenes of national absurdity. The play was originally performed in 1947, by the theatre company of Vasilis Logothetidis, at the 'Kentrikon' theatre in Athens.
