We are in the waterfalls of Edessa, a town in Macedonia and the capital of the prefecture of Pella in northern Greece.

The town’s twelve waterfalls were created in the 14th century AD after a strong earthquake and extend over an area of ​​100,000 sqm, being one of the most important natural attractions in the country. They originate mainly from the wetland of Agra-Nisi and the Edessaios river.

The film opens with a shot of a cafe that is located in the waterfall park and the tourist shop that sells souvenirs. Then, the camera shows us the foamy water of the river that flows between the plane trees while in the next shot we watch from afar a small shop with a tiled roof next to the stone staircase.

The filmmaker gives us a tour to the pools of the park where we observe the visitors who have arrived at the area to enjoy the sunny day. Afterwards, we see an abandoned stone building, near the chapel of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and read an inscription of religious content.

Next, we see shots from the park's large waterfall, Karanos, which at 70 meters high is the largest waterfall in the country. At first, we stand in front of it and observe the people who are gathered on the stone terraces around it. Then we move next to the waterfall and look at the water as it falls and rolls in the river. At the bottom of Karanos waterfall, a small cave has been created and we can stand out the stalactites.

Lasty, we watch one more shot of the big waterfall, from a different angle, where the filmmaker shows us the foamy river as it continues its course.
