Few Greeks—and even few Spaniards—know that Greek sailors served on the ships of the mission of Magellan and Elcano, who 500 years ago attempted the long and turbulent journey that was to become the first known round-the-world voyage. This film is a rigorous documentary, but as told via a fictional vehicle. It contains a dialogue, wherein History interrogates the little-known Greek naval pilot who managed to return to Spain with the only surviving ship of this first circumnavigation, thereby bequeathing to the future, and to humanity’s written heritage, the nautical diary from that singular expedition.
