The Grocer

Ο μανάβης

Nikos Anastasiou, a Greek travelling grocer has been making the same itinerary with his wife Sophia since 1980. Once a week, all year long, starting from Trikala city they visit the abandoned villages of the SW Pindos mountains, a 75 kilometers drive. In the past few years, their two sons, Kostas and Thimios help them. The documentary follows their journey through the changing of the seasons, morphing into a fascinating and often touching road movie about a little-known side of Greece.
