The tears of the mountain’ follows the odyssey of a company of stonemasons during the troublesome first years of the previous century. Driven away from their land, with war at their heels, cut off by winter, they will perish one by one. Only Markos, the master of the builders, will keep going, like a modern Ulysses, relentless in his quest.
