The Garden of God

Ο κήπος του Θεού

Around Christmas time, four everyday men, Kontos, Psilos, Alekos, and Sinoue, decide to reinvent themselves because in “the Garden of God” nothing ever changes... They play football, go to church, learn to dance, recite poetry, lose their friends, hit their enemies, draw the wishes they want to send in their own breath. They go all the way... They riot, burn mattresses, break planks, bleed and promise themselves that this Christmas they’ll make their way down to the sea... A prison story leads to a film about human pain and friendship.
