As many others Margaritis, a peasant is forced to leave his home and get down in Thessaloniki with his daughter and son. They find refuge in an old building, a Caravan Serai with hundreds of other refugees. In this area, refugees live under extremely wretched conditions and resort to all kinds of dishonesty and bargaining.
