The screenplay tells the story of young Hippocrates who, eager to acquire the knowledge of a visiting wise man, Protagoras, calls on Socrates to find out if this tutelage would be worth the money. While in audience to the ensuing debate, Hippocrates is distracted by Alcibiades, and quickly develops a complex infatuation. Alcibiades leaves and Hippocrates follows.
