In this sentimental drama, a man goes to Greece to contemplate his life after he learns that he is dying of a rare terminal illness. There he hears many local myths which he at first discounts. But as he listens, he comes to understand why the residents value them so highly. One of the young storytellers introduces him to another American and they fall in love. But as his illness progresses and his time to die draws nigh, the man abruptly leaves the island to spare her the grief of his passing.
