Brief synopsis in English: The documentary follows the efforts of two artists from Pafos, Cyprus, to find a printmaking press that once belonged to the House of Letters and Arts of the town. Following up on rumors and testimonies they get lost in the labyrinth of public cultural services. The experience recorded can be scary or comical, depending on one's point of view. The press, as the title states, was never found. Whatever its fate was, the only conclusion is that this city is very, very strange.

Brief synopsis in Greek: Το ντοκιμαντέρ περιγράφει τις προσπάθειες δύο καλλιτεχνών από την Πάφο να βρουν το πιεστήριο χαρακτικής που κάποτε υπήρχε στη Στέγη Γραμμάτων και Τεχνών της πόλης. Ακολουθώντας φήμες και μαρτυρίες, χάνονται στο λαβύρινθο της διαχείρισης πολιτιστικών αγαθών από πολλές και διάφορες δημόσιες υπηρεσίες. Η εμπειρία που καταγράφουν είναι τρομακτική ή κωμική, ανάλογα με το πώς το βλέπει κανείς. Το πιεστήριο, όπως δηλώνει ο τίτλος, δεν βρέθηκε ποτέ. Όποια κι αν ήταν η μοίρα του, το μόνο συμπέρασμα είναι το πόσο παράξενη είναι αυτή η πόλη.
