26th TIDF: World Premiere

A ghost story of obsession, solitude, and madness, taking place in a chess coffeehouse out of place and time, in the center of Athens: This is the story of Panellinion, a refuge for people who suffocate in everyday life, who despise and fail to adapt to the conditions of modern life.
