A Dream of Kings
"A Dream of Kings" tells the tale of Leonidas Matsoukas, a half-charlatan and half-concerned adviser, who is by turns a compulsive gambler and adulterer. But Matsoukas's dreams are fixed on an ailing son, for whose cure everything must be sacrificed. A journey to the sacred land of Greece will restore the health of the child and, perhaps too, the dignity of the father.
