Brief synopsis in English: The region of Greece’s West Macedonia is host to some of the biggest lignite mining pits in the Balkans. It is in this region that archaeologist Georgia Karamitrou and her team have dedicated their lives in an attempt to protect the cultural and natural environment of the land. After 30 years of excavations and numerous important finds, Georgia faces one more 'battle'. The Greek National Power Company is building a new dam in the region and Georgia has 2 months time to salvage as much as possible from the archaeological dig which is planned to be flooded during the construction process. Georgia makes a grand attempt to rescue what she can before it sinks and rests, forever lost, in the lake’s bottom, or to be more precise sacrificed in the name of what we shortsightedly call ‘progress'...

Brief synopsis in Greek: Η Γεωργία Καραμήτρου, αρχαιολόγος που έχει αφιερώσει τη ζωή της στη προστασία του φυσικού και πολιτισμικού περιβάλλοντος στη περιοχή της Δυτικής Μακεδονίας, δίνει τη τελευταία μάχη της καριέρας της. Έχει μερικούς μήνες μπροστά της για να σώσει ότι μπορεί από ένα μεγάλο αρχαιολογικό χώρο που θα χαθεί για πάντα στο βυθό μιας τεχνητής λίμνης. Στη προσπάθεια της αυτή, καλείται να αντιμετωπίσει μια σειρά από εμπόδια, να σταθεί δυνατή και να αναδείξει στο τέλος το νόημα της "προσωπικής ευθύνης" και τη σημασία να την αναλαμβάνεις.
