Akrokorinthos (Acrocorinth) is a monolithic rock, 575 meters high, overseeing the ancient city of Corinth, Greece. Due to its morphology, it was the fortified acropolis of ancient and medieval Corinth.

The filmmaker and his family climb the hill. We see panoramic shots of the plain of Corinth, the Gulf of Corinth, parts of the castle walls reinforced with towers and bastions and lastly its arched gate.

We see closer shots of the entrance and inside the castle as well as remains of the towers, various buildings and walls. We see a panoramic shot of the plain of Corinth to the sea. We see one more arched passage to the castle as the filmmaker's family walk among the ruins as a happy dog ​​looks at the sea of the Corinthian gulf.

Afterwards, we watch a man on the half-demolished roof of a tower and the effect of the lens against the sunlight. The lens shows us a few more panoramic shots of the buildings, the walls, the plain, a couple discussing and an old mosque, a remnant of the Ottoman period.

Lastly, we watch shots from the highest point where we can see the walls, some parts of the castle and the side of the steep cliff.
