Evagoras is a poor villager living in Cyprus, just as Greece is about to become embroiled in WWII in 1940. He has made a vow to visit the shrine of St Andreas far away from his own village, if his wife gives birth to a son, after several girls have been borne to her. Once the baby son arrives, Evagoras begins his long trek accompanied by his faithful donkey. Determined to complete his holy vow, Evagoras presses on resolutely, although there are several people bent on preventing him reaching his goal and fate seemingly conspires against him.
