Epidavros is a municipality in the prefecture of Argolis in Peloponnese, Greece.

The filmmaker is in the Archaeological area of Asclepeion at Epidaurus, one of the most important sanctuaries dedicated to the ancient Greek God of medicine, Asclepius. It was the most important healing center of all ancient Greek and Roman world and brought prosperity to the sanctuary both for its therapeutic practices and for a place of worship and Culture, since the area also includes the ancient theatre, the odeon, the Stadium.

The filmmaker's sister picks up wild flowers that have sprouted among the ruins of the archeological area while the filmmaker's father walks to the place where the Ancient Stadium of the Asclepieion was. In the same area, two tourists admire what is left in the ancient complex and read the guides. As they leave they receive a treat from the filmmaker's mother.

Afterwards, the filmmaker's father looks at the bust of the great Greek conductor Dimitris Mitropoulos, which is located at the entrance of the Archaeological area of Epidaurus and in the next shot we see the entrance itself.

The area is overgrown with citrus trees for which Argolis is particularly fertile and is considered a major export power for the country.

The tour among the ruins continues as we see a general view of the Stadium, a panoramic view of the Odeion, flowering almond trees, small and larger mountains in the background as well as a dog that happily wags its tail.
