Athanasios, a mischievous, 21 year old Greek American, lives and works with his grandfather, a Greek immigrant, in the family shoe repair store. Athanasios takes his Greek heritage for granted, and more importantly, the significance of his name and what it means. It is through the telling of his grandfather’s survival of the Kalavryta Massacre of 1943 that Athanasios finally realizes and appreciates his heritage — never again shunning away his name or family.
