A group of musicians travels to Syros, to participate to a tribute to Markos Vamvakaris. At the same time, composers, musicologists and artists from all over the world, bring out his important music legacy in the 21st century.

Markos, the iconic musician of the 20th century, the pioneer, the Rebetiko patriarch, who achieves the wondrous union of our popular culture: music, word and movement. But the greatest proof of the importance of his legacy, is documented when the camera finds contemporary artists of different kinds of music and we get to know the unexpected cover versions of his songs and the respect with which they deal with Markos and his work.
