The movie is about the father of the director, Spyros, his life and experiences. He is the protagonist and narrator. The "Just Like Water" speaks about time and the circle of life.
The questions asked are, what is time and how do we perceive it? Do we really live the moments in our daily lives and do we give them their due value?
So, we follow a magical journey through time, embedded with vivid images of Spyros, grandfather, man, child ... A girl and a woman always there. A patchwork of images, accompanied by original musical composition, sketched in detail: it weaves the puzzle of a whole life nestled in the Island of Crete (Greece).

An important part of human life is time. It concerns him, it defines him. It all has to do with time running "Just like water" in combination with a life cycle that is constantly repeated.
The family is another important part in the course of his life. The place where he was born and raised. His place. His homeland.
I carry these precious pieces with me to this day. In my mind, in my soul, and on the screen.
