After the elections, the Greeks of the Ottoman Empire realized that things were not as they expected. Miltos’ father is elected Member of Parliament, but terrorism in the villages of Pontus remains. The Sultan’s forces are counter-revolutionary, but they fail to regain power. In the riots that erupt, Dr. Nikolaidis is saved from a certain death by the chieftain Spatharis, who pays for his love interest for Iphigenia. In this perverse atmosphere, Miltos asks Sakharov to go back with Kerem, who has already arrived in Paris.
