A love story set in the crucial transitional political period of the 1970s Greece.

In Athens, a radical female journalist and a former stage actor share their lives against the backdrop of the regime change, right after the fall of the military dictatorship and the first legislative elections in 1974. The film provides a portrait of a new generation of professional women who fought for changes both in politics and in their personal lives.

The film won second place at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the Best Film Award by the Greek Film Critics Association.

Frida Liappa is considered one of the leading figures of New Greek cinema, admired for her originality and her ability to make her mark in art cinema.

FRIDA LIAPPA (Φρίντα Λιάππα)


Born in Messene, filmmaker and writer Frida Liappa (1948-1994) was arrested for her political activism during the dictatorship when she was a university student. After completing her studies in literature in Athens and later, in cinema in London, Liappa became a member of the editorial board of the magazine Contemporary Cinema and published several poetry collections. Due to her bravery in the face of difficult subject matters and her distinct artistic style, she is considered one of the most important Greek female filmmakers.
