Nico Papatakis brilliantly dissects the soul of modern Greece in this darkly comic, cuttingly perceptive exile’s tale. Fleeing political turmoil in Greece, Ilias (Aris Retsos) travels to Paris and seeks out Gerasimos (Hristos Tsagas), a homesick relative working there as a furrier. A misunderstanding involving a photograph that Ilias has brought with him leads each man into a tangled web of deception and delusion that lays bare their complex relationships to their homeland.
