An Italian cinematographer finds himself in the midst of the Greek socio-political crisis. He returns home to Milan to his ex-wife, only to be drawn back to Athens, where an Australian TV producer hires his services as a maverick cinematographer. Greek-Australian independent filmmaker Bill Mousoulis makes his first feature film on European soil, delving into a story of personal and public politics, ambitiously shot in two countries (Greece and Italy) with very little money, but with a lively, documentary style. Lead actor Alessandro Figurelli gives a powerhouse performance in this fresh, unique take on the Greek crisis.
