The Surface of Things

Η επιφάνεια των πραγμάτων

There is an urban legend in
Athens about Errinyos, an ancient underground river that nobody
ever saw but which, one day during the 80s, came back to life and swept a girl away. Today a young anthropologist is researching the legend and locates the people who knew the girl. They are her three best friends, now in their 40s, and their history teacher, who is now retired. Through bits and pieces of letters, tapes and interviews, these women narrate the tragic story that took place 
30 years ago and marked their 
lives as well as the city’s collective memory.
