The film highlights key elements of the personality of the two painters as well as the historical context that shaped it. The common themes they treat (Greek heroes, scenes of family and religious life, etc.) and their style support the shared lineage in the naïve art of both the Greek and Cypriot Hellenism as well as the collective memory of the two peoples.
