Synopsis

Anestis, having lost his wife, tries and achieves to find a way in order to have her close to him again.

Director's statement

Main film’s themes are the loss, the loneliness, the intentional isolation and the way that all these are able to lead in very specific actions. In our story, Anestis, an elderly man who is experiencing the loss and the loneliness, has chosen to isolate despite the fact that he lives in a small community. Shut in his place – his home – in his own world, Anestis every day faces the routine he has chosen for himself. His everyday goal is not to keep on living, but to keep alive his relationship with his passed away wife.
