story is told through a young American ex-patriot doctor/journalist (John
Quincy Walton) who is swept up into the Revolution during his 'holiday'
in Greece. He finds himself intricately involved with Old Man Kolokotronis'
convoluted role in liberating his country.
Walton does his best against impossible odd to prevent the Greeks
from making the same mistakes, which were made in American Revolution, or
by revolutionary 'heroes' such as Walton's Revolutionary War hero
father who, in reality, was no hero at all.
The conflict-heavy bond between Kolokotronis and the 'young
Turk' American idealist is endangered by a beautiful woman with a
mysterious past who threatens not only the father-son relationship between
Walton and Kolokotronis, but the fate of the Revolution itself.
