The popular philosopher Karagiozis meets ancient comedy and Aristophanes in a colorful lyrical tale. In this adaptation, Karagiozis and Barba Giorgos, disappointed with their city, look for the ideal place to live. They leave behind the impressive apartment buildings, cars, noise, and misery of the city and its people, and pour into the forest.
