In another era… Flash forward. Angel We ate all our animals… There is nothing left to us anymore… Fotis But we had nothing! Angel And all our wealth… Fotis It wasn’t enough not even for supplies…Time. Now there’s only one thing left to us… Angel What might have left to us? Fotis The only thing that is of value… Time. Our humanness… Angel What can our humaneness do with those barbarians? Fotis Give the example! Angel To whom? Fotis To history! Angel What does history mean when you have no future any longer? Fotis But then it’s much more significant. Time. In front of death all that fills in life becomes details… Angel And if we had nothing else? Fotis Our people were born in the light and grew up in fire! Angel Now though that our last hope has quenched, darkness will cover us… Fotis One candle is enough to enlighten the world… Silence. Angel Yes, four hundred years have not been able to erase our nation… Fotis These four hundred years made them grow up! Angel They made them grow up so as to die! Fotis Death is not our enemy… It’s there where every life ends… Time. Our enemies are the barbarians. Angel And what can we do? Fotis Nothing any longer! They will help us! Angel But how? Fotis Not live but become memory! Angel What does all this mean? Fotis Our real opponent is oblivion…It’s stronger than death even … Angel You are asking too much! Time. Nobody will follow you… Fotis I don’t want them to follow me… I want their liberation! Angel And what if the cost of liberty is death? Fotis There is no other coin left… Angel And who would do this sacrifice? Fotis No one! Silence. Only a people can do this! Angel The people want bread and you offer them their death! Fotis It’s not the name that gives value, but the value that creates the name… Time. Mesolonghi is not born yet! Angel And will it be born with the sacrifice of the people? Fotis There is no other choice… Angel Oblivion… Fotis Yes. Angel So, it’s the only way to beat oblivion… Fotis The only one. Angel And what about the children? Fotis There are no children any more…. Their youth died out of hunger… Angel I don’t know whether our people will believe us… Fotis Faith says the same thing… Angel What do you mean? Fotis If there had been no crucifixion, there wouldn’t have been Christ… Angel But who can accept this? Fotis Without crucifixion, there is no resurrection… Angel The value of life is death… Fotis And the value of death is memory… Angel Since we lost the battle for life! Fotis We have to give the battle for memory! Angel In this way we will live inside memory… Fotis It’s only in this way that we will exist… Flash forward. The end.
