World Premiere

Young Dimitris, on the verge of manhood yet very much a child, has romanticized his absent father to mythic proportions. When his father is finally released from prison, Dimitris’s dream of family happiness is more lucid than ever, but is immediately transformed. While fighting for everything he wished for, he has to face an unprecedented form of violence.
