After nine days all Peter’s friends are together again at a traditional cafeteria… Full shot. Irene In secret to Aris. Ask discretely where Fotis is. Aris What for? To accuse him again? Marina If you are talking about Fotis… Irene No for God sake… Angry looking at Aris. Marina He’s not coming today. Athanasia But why? What happened again? John Peter used to disappear on a day like this… To Marina… Do you remember? Marina Smiling. Yes, the first time it surprised me too… Looking at Irene. Later though I understood… Athanasia What did you understand? Marina This day is symbolic to our people… Irene And does this explain why Fotis is absent? John This explains everything! Silence. Aris Fotis is at the gallery… Irene But how do you know this? Aris I didn’t know it…Time. But Peter used to go there… John With his ghosts… Athanasia Ghosts? Time. But there… John There are not only paintings there! Marina Memories are stronger than the present over there... Irene But what is he talking about? Time. We came for Peter. John And Fotis left for Peter. Athanasia Upset. John what are you hiding from us? John I am not hiding you anything… Time. If you don’t see something this doesn’t necessarily mean that it doesn’t exist… At the gallery…Flashback. A clerk explains to Fotis that the entrance is not allowed to the public…However, one of his superiors is nodding him to enter… Fotis is not looking at the rooms of the ground floor and he is going up from the central stairs…Each stair is a step back to the past… He feels that another world is waiting for him… A world that he met earlier not only in Meyer’s and Peter’s diaries… At the central room, he turns to the right and he is absorbed by the painting of a French painter... He stands still for several minutes without saying a word…He takes a step towards the child… He wants to close its wet eyes… But at the same time he hears a voice... Angel I was waiting for you, brother… Fotis is turning and along with him time does too… He is now in a poor house with his old friend… Angel embraces him…When did you come? Fotis Yesterday. Angel Smiling. One day ago… Time. Peter is late… Fotis He will never be late from now on… Angel Did they catch him? Fotis No, his mission changed… He became the Lagoon’s guardian… Angel Here the situation is getting worse from day to another… Fotis How are the children? Angel Many died…Fotis makes the sign of the Cross upon himself… And the rest are hungry… Fotis How about the women? Angel Mothers faded out… In time they became warriors… Fotis Where is your mother? Angel Eleftheria wants to die… She has been waiting for you, though… Fotis Where is she? Angel In the next room… He shows him the door… Fotis May I see her? Angel It’s the only thing keeping her alive… Fotis opens the door as slowly as he can… Eleftheria pale on her bed … Eleftheria My child! Fotis I’m next to you, my mother… Eleftheria I’ve been waiting for you… Fotis I’m sorry… Angel He’s with us now.
