The story of a Greek waterway and benefactor of Greece and Russia,John Varvakis,is an epic tale which starts from poor ''Psara'',before the Greek Revolution against Turkey,and reaches the courtyard of Catherine the Great and Russian land,and leads to revolutionary Greece of 1821.

Corsairs in the Aegean, political games in the courtyard of Russian 'tsarina', the discovery and exploitation of caviar from the Greek John Varvakis,complex conspiracies of the Great Powers against Greeks, loves, friendships, betrayals and family dramas composing the fictionalized life of this wierd and yet so emblematic and attractive Greek.
