Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The civil war in Greece motivates the storyline of Caravan Sarai. Thimos Karakatsanis plays a rural villager who must leave the house where he's dwelt virtually all his life. He and his two children are evacuated to the city, where they are billeted in a small apartment. Here they (and we) remain until the end of the film. Despite the film's limited playing area, quite a lot occurs in Caravan Sarai -- too much, in fact, to suit the peace-loving protagonists.
