The film illustrates an important archaic poem, the Hymn to Apollo of Delos of the 7th century BC, which comprises the first part of the so-called Homeric Hymn to Apollo.
The emphasis is on the poetic text which  evolves on a background of Cycladic light and landscape.

The hymn and film start with the arrival of the grand god of the Aegean Sea and of the Ions among his peers on Olympus. We then turn back to the wanderings of his mother Leto, pregnant by Zeus, all over the Aegean Sea, on her search for a forthcoming land to bear her child. Only the island of Delos, at the centre of this Sea, accepts on the condition of large exchanges to hold this great event.
The ancient pre-olympic goddesses help Leto with the birth. The divine youth grows up on the beloved island where each year the Ions gather in his honor. Athletic games, musical and poetic competitions take place on these occasions when the girls of Delos also sing the ancient poems and speak in all languages. They will award the blind minstrel of this hymn with the poetic prize.
