This film is an experimental documentary exploring the directors memories and Astoria before and during the corona virus. The main character is a 73 year old man named Iason. Iason has experienced a painful past, and he is trying to connect his life with the one that Jason from Greek mythology had. Just like Iason, Astoria acts in the same way. It tries to tie herself to the city of Athens and to the Ancient Greek world.
