The Greeks, forced to abandon their homes in Amissos, continue their journey to nowhere. The Turks beat up and mock the exhausted, hungry and thirsty people all the way. At one point they come to a river, but the Turks gleefully prevent them from drinking. Pavlidis realizes that he is now dead weight, and begs Eugenia to leave him behind and go on. Those who manage to survive reach an abandoned village and try to find houses for themselves. Their troubles are however far from over.
The Turks mass the Greeks up once again, and force them to continue their journey in the wilderness, lying that they are returning back to Amissos. Those sick and the bαbies are left behind. Amongst them is Giorgos Pavlidis who is unable to follow the rest. A heart broken Eugenia is not allowed to stay back with her husband. Miltos and Themis make efforts to save their father and bring their family together again. Things are however out of control and threats lurk everywhere.
