In 1969, Theo Angelopoulos shot his first feature film "Reconstruction" in the village of Monodendri in Ioannina. In the summer of 2013, Lefteris Rizos, a permanent resident of the village who was an extra in this important film, talks about the noose that was slipped round his neck to serve the needs of the script. A brief existential comment. The noose in the film, the morality of its heroes, Lefteris’s life with the film crew, the experience that marked him, the comments on his own personal life and ethics, the friends who have passed – everything now acquires a different meaning for him as he looks back with the wisdom, the bitterness and the humor of his 92 years.
