Death of a Virgin, and the Sin of Not Living

Death of a Virgin, and the Sin of Not Living

Greek Premiere

We are all trying to make it through life the best way we know how to. It is a constant struggle, a perpetual adventure, a unique story with an inevitably common ending. Etienne’s case is no different. Though he woke up today knowing it wasn’t going to be just another average day, he could have never expected it to be the day he wakes up. Adnan, Etienne’s best friend is taking him, Jean-Paul and Dankoura to visit a prostitute for the first time: three troubled teens on their way to lose their virginity and win their acceptance into manhood. Though several unexpected occurrences take Etienne on an unforeseen journey into himself. Etienne goes in, but he never really comes out.
