Filmography   

filmmaker's note
I made this film after my father narrated a story of a time he suffered the same consequences in his small village in Greece. Without a second thought I started to write. The film speaks to man, for the power of love, the respect, the need for contact, for generosity. Deep rooted values that we have forgotten in the trivial and passive life we lead. I wanted my film to highlight the man who has not forgotten to Love. The Man who did not give up even when things go wrong. The Man who loves unconditionally. The Man who risks and bypasses his own pain to fulfill the dying wish of his loving wife. This simple everyday person – the Hero who lives away from city noise.
