The Chaos She Left Behind

Το χάος που άφησε πίσω της

Anna, a woman in her late twenties, feels that her life is slipping through her fingers. A ticket to a prestigious music school in Paris might be the perfect (last) chance to pursue her dream career as a piano performer. Success no longer seems so elusive unless her manipulative, self-destructive alcoholic father stands in her way.
