Chris Krikellis takes us to his former home country, Greece, but the journey goes far beyond his memories. At the border towns of the river Evros, which lies between Turkey and Greece, he talks to a pathologist who examines the bodies of refugees who tried to cross the river and drowned. Relentlessly yet sensitively, the fates and traces of people are interwoven with waving fields, foaming water, and abandoned villages, asking questions about war, home, belonging, and humanity.
