Vouta

Βούτα

Vouta is a pigeon breed that flies all the way up to the clouds, then dives at 230 km/h and slows down just before hitting the ground. Christos is a teenager who lives in a disadvantaged neighborhood of Athens. He has to find a way to avoid conflict with his father who just got home from prison, just like the pigeons he loves avoid collision.
