Synopsis

“One of the best European films to date on the subject of immigration in all its painful implications.” Hollywood Reporter

Meeting at the chaotic intersection of the biggest refugee and displacement crisis of our time, filmmaker Yannis Sakardis paints a stark triptych of a modern Athens – passionate, fragile and primed to explode.

Pushing 40, unemployed and blaming the thousands of refugees in his neighbourhood for his woes, Nakos (Makis Papadimitriou, the irrepressible star of GFF favourites from last year’s program, Suntan and Chevalier) decides to take matters into his own hands.

At the same time, disillusioned tattoo artist Billy (Yannis Stankoglou, Cloudy Sunday, GFF 2016) falls hard for African singer Tereza (Ksenia Dania) who’s looking to escape Greece by sea, while Syrian ex-military doctor Tarek (Vassilis Kukalani) wants to find a safer passage out with his daughter among the scam artists and people smugglers.

When Nakos puts his hateful plot into motion, four lives will intersect and nothing will go according to plan.

Winner of the Best Feature Film at the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival 2017 and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Thessaloniki Film Festival 2016.
