In response to pressure from a foreign oil company, the Greek government expelled the people of the entire village of Meguara to permit the land to be used for oil drilling. This documentary chronicles the successful struggle of the villagers to recover their territory, now ruined. After discovering the state of their property, the villagers returned to join a group of students protesting in Athens, and many of them were killed in the ensuing violence.
