Just before the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, at the end of the Cold War. Everything is changing in front of Anthi's eyes and Christos seems to be changing, too. "Bella" is the story of a moment in time recreated as if in a feverish dream where fiction and documentary overlap perfectly, creating a striking and emotional cinematic universe.
