A charming coming-of-age story from Greece. Achilles longs to escape his village, as well as his bickering parents and the unbearable destiny of being a blacksmith's son. As a turn of events, he breaks his leg by falling off the yard wall of the local cinema. He had wanted to see Brigit Bardo naked... However, during his visit to the city to treat his broken leg, for the first time in his life he sees a television! The program informs about the launching of Apollo to the moon. The idea of the launching becomes Achileas' obsession, and along with his friends they collect enough money to purchase a TV set. However, soon the dilemma becomes imperative. Will they buy a television or "visit" all together Uranya in order to be taught the secrets of love? The situation gets even more complicated when the authorities arrest Achileas' father along with the father of a good friend in order to intimidate others: Spiros Agnew, who will visit Greece, intends to visit the small country town as well and so everything must show quiet and "friendly" to the regime... Achileas and his friends will not give up that easy...
