A dodo, a bird extinct for the last 300 years, shows up at the villa of a formerly wealthy family in Athens. The owners are counting down the critical two days to their daughter’s wedding, which will bring their financial salvation. In Dodo’s presence, the already thin line between sanity and madness collapses as the situation spins out of control.
