Giannis Syletos was born in Crete and was forced from a very young age, due to the difficult financial situation, to move to Athens and stay with his uncle in Petroupoli. The protagonist of the documentary tells us stories of a lifetime as well as the events that determined his course.
Going through great adventures, he managed to get a job in the café of EIRT (ERT), a fact that would determine his subsequent development. He collaborated with the most important orchestras of the planet, as well as with the most important Greek creators and all this thanks to his great teacher, Manos Hatzidakis. Having worked for many years as a sound engineer at ERT and the Orchestra of the Colors, he puts us in the magical world of sound engineering and music.
