Storyline

Lymberis, a poor builder, has three sons: disabled Antonis, who lost both his hands during the German occupation, from a grenade explosion, bad-tempered Giagos, desperately seeking for a job, and little Fotakis, the family's pride, that his mother wishes that he will finish school. The life of the three will dramatically change, after the death of their father on a work accident. Written by capamaroux@yahoo.gr
