War brings violence and often killings of innocent people. The nationalists try to hide their own atrocities and use the atrocities of the enemy as propaganda. In Cyprus, a country suffered from a bicommunal conflict, some men do not allow to a group to put flowers in the spot of an execution. They argue that nothing had happened in their village. Yiorgos, who returns to this village after 46 years, visits this spot and he witnesses his personal experience there. He was executed with another 20 persons. He personally was lucky. He survived with 11 bullets in his body. He reflects upon the events, forgiveness and his wish that no man will ever again live through such horror. He visits Husseyin in a nearby village, and search the truth about the events there the same day he was shot. Men of his own nationality massacred innocent people, among them all the family of Husseyin. He puts some flowers on the spot of their execution.
