A sharp, light-hearted look at commitment

Newly single Demos spends his summer in Athens with his long-time friend Nikitas. While having a day-long swim at Athens’ queer beach, Demos helps his friend write his first screenplay. The two go back over Demos’s break-up, his inability to live on his own, his encounters with love, his father’s illness and the adoption of Carmen, his ex-girlfriend’s little dog…

In a clever mise en abyme, with a script written on the basis of a screenplay that never saw the light of day, Zacharias Mavroeidis examines the inspiration and structure of the story. Never short of good words, this comedy also questions the difficulties of commitment.
