A Greyhound of a Girl

A Greyhound of A Girl

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere
Mary is 11 years old and has an insuppressible passion for cooking: She dreams of becoming a great chef. Her grandmother Emer, with whom she has a very special relationship, encourages her to make this dream come true. But every path has its pesky obstacles, and facing them turns into quite an adventure. Mary thus begins a journey across the barriers of time, in which four generations of women come together and get to know each other truly and deeply. A delicate coming-of-age story, sprinkled with irony.
