The film opens with the "Iraklion" sign of the "Nikos Kazantzakis" airport of Heraklion, Crete. Two men are walking and smiling at the camera.
We see the Olympic aircraft "Island of Samos", a Douglas DC-6B, preparing for departure, as people climb the stairs. A crew member controls the wing and a flight attendant approaches. The engines start, the plane gets into position and finally takes off.
