A first edition of a Jules Verne’s book falls into the hands of Peter, a collector and reseller of rare books, becoming the ticket to a strange journey into uncharted waters. In its pages he discovers love, death, the loneliness of Captain Nemo, his own past. Following the clues, the truth unfolds before him, sometimes mysterious and sometimes frighteningly clear.
During this journey he meets Eurydice, lost in her own pages and obsessions. Against the backdrop of warm autumn Athens, they will seek their place in history together, sometimes the protagonists and sometimes the extras in a play they did not write, but live day by day, 20,000 leagues under the sea.
