The storyline unfolds around a missing person since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Nikiforos, a 19-year-old soldier of the national guard, doing his military service in the 361st infantry battalion on Pentadaktylos mountain range is missing in action. Nikiforos himself, as every other missing person, knows exactly what happened to him, and led to his “disappearance” and death. Those who are ignorant and live through this vanished person situation are people close to him; survivors like his siblings Hermes and Julia, Aunt Fani, Savvas his friend. Even Michael, Julia’s son who was born 28 years after Nikiforos went missing, thinks about him, makes assumptions, has feelings and fears associated with his uncle’s circumstances(fate). The background being the present time, which the characters observe, ponder and discuss, whilst getting on with their everyday life, we follow Hermes, Julia, Michael, Savvas and Michael. By studying their thoughts and feelings, the hidden connections that connect them with Nikiforos unravel. As a few bone fragments of his are identified and matched as “him”, things darken and climax. The story ends with a scene which is completely different in ambience from the main body of the Outpost - a magical catharsis.
