Panellinion is an out-of-place-and-time chess coffeehouse in the center of Athens; a refuge for those who suffocate in modern life. Giannis, the owner, hates chess, yet has a fatherly affection for his regulars, who see consolation in it. Teared up, they recall old stories, roister, drink and sing.
