Nikostratos / Olivier Horlait

Yannis 14, lives on a small Greek island that has remained pristine. Since the death of his mother, the relationship between himself and his father has deteriorated. The only thing they have in common is fishing and tending to their vegetable gardening, which is how they make a living. However, this summer, everything will change. Nikostratos, a loveable white pelican will come into Yannis’s life in the most unexpected way and give it a whole new meaning. The tender relationship which will develop between the boy and the bird will affect both the way Yannis’s father treats him, and the everyday life of the small island community. And when Yannis and Nikostratos are joined by Angeliki, the sweet and vivacious niece of Aristotelis, owner of the island’s only coffee shop, the experiences they will have together will remain etched in their memory and stay with them forever...
