“Best Screenplay” – London Greek Film Festival (2011)
Thanasis, an elderly writer at an early stage of dementia, is the only inhabitant of a deserted mountain village. He wanders alone in the alleyways ‘conversing’ with himself and with his fictional characters of his next book, Andreas and Eva.
His book is about two fugitives of a regime that prescribes an elixir of youth only to those of productive age and under very strict criteria. Andreas and Eva steal a box of the elixir and run away. They find a derelict wooden hat in a forest, near Thanasis’ village, and use it as their hideaway.
The reality is tangled with fiction, time is losing its linearity, and Andreas and Eve ‘are being’ formed through the falsified memory and the frustrations of Thanasis’ life.
The film narrates the ordeal of a young Greek, who wakes up after a traffic accident not knowing who he is. An Italian passport with his alleged name: Pedro Noula, a broken cell phone, a bank check and the photograph of a woman are the only clues he has at his disposal. With these and with the help of a woman, a well-known singer with whom he becomes romantically involved, he will attempt to search for his identity. His quest will turn to be a nightmarish adventure, in which he will find himself confronted by his darkest side.

By an unfortunate printing error, Pera Kassiros, a small Greek island lost somewhere in the Aegean Sea, is omitted from the new Atlas of the EU. The few remaining Perakassirians –people isolated and devided- raise hell and bring the matter to the Minister.
As the Minister is under extreme pressure by the financial troubles of the country, he gets the idea to sweep the whole thing under the carpet and sell Pera Kassiros to a Chinese consortium.
The Perakassirians –unsuspecting of the somber plans for their land – suddenly find themselves facing a fence dividing the island into two and making their life difficult. Now they will have to put aside their rivalries and unite if they want to save their island.
