In the summer of 2007 fires are eating their way through the western Peloponnese in Greece. Within 24 hours 180 fires break out, killing at least 70 people. From one moment to the next the landscape has changed into a grey-brown, ghostly silent wasteland. What soon sprouts up are the old familiar reproaches: land speculators want to turn the forest into building land, herders into pastureland and politicians into voting land. But here too, tender greenery is soon to make its way again. Until next time.
