We are in the port of Souda, Chania, in northwestern Crete and a very important port of the island.
The film opens with a shot of the passenger-vehicle ferry boat "Phaistos", during the boarding of the passengers from the stairs, just before its departure for Piraeus. We see a shot of the ship’s lifeboats and the passengers who look at the harbor.
The vehicles are loaded on the ferry boat either by entering and parking on the ground floor garage or by cranes on the upper decks of the ship.
"Phaistos" ferry boat sailed in the afternoon, people saying goodbye to their loved ones who were standing at the pier, it’s getting dark and we see one last panoramic view with the the mountain ranges of Crete.
