In the words of the director, this is a story about “tender people in a not so tender world,” told with humor, lyricism, and honesty. With his unique directorial approach, Voulgaris centers on a daughter who returns to Polydroso, the place where she was born and raised, to care for her ailing mother. The ties between them grow stronger as they relive past experiences and confront old ghosts that surround them. That a male director so adroitly captures the intimacy and passion of their relationship adds a level of awe and intrigue for so masterful a director.
