The movie consists of several episodes, depicting the various adventures and misadventures of a boy and his friends during their summer vacations from school at 1960. Using that as a canvas, Avdeliodis gives as a glimpse into the everyday life of the villagers as well as an insight into the boy's thoughts and feelings.
In the course of this brief holiday scrapbook, the boy assists his mother in cutting the bark of the gum tree -''the tree we hurt'' - so the gum may drip out like tears or jewels. He frolics with a stray dog, joins in anouting on the beach, frees some trapped birds and is shot at by the bird catcher. He develops a crush on a pretty girl visitor. He and his best friend, Runny-Nose Vangelis, also known as the Cat Strangler, participate in funeral processions to earn a few coins. They splash in a tiny pool, eat ice cream and smoke a cigarette. With some other kids, they make war on wasps and pick on the local lunatic.
