The story of a woman forced by circumstance to confront the place that made her. Having left behind her life as a failed actor, Antigone, now in her thirties, takes a job as an English teacher. She reconnects with old friends and neighbours who never left the town, and even finds a younger boyfriend. But as the community's undercurrents of intolerance and violence begin to boil over, Antigone's determination to return to her roots and quietly reassimilate is shaken — until it becomes increasingly difficult to stay out of other peoples' business.

Yorgos Servetas

Born in Athens, Greece, in 1978, he grew up in Thiva. He studied computing at the University of Patras before taking a one year film course at the Lykourghos Stavrakos School in Athens. In 2008, he directed The Way Things are Determined, a genuine piece of DIY, no budget filmmaking, which was officially selected by Thessaloniki IFF. Then he directed Standing Aside, Watching. Servetas works as a school-teacher of Information Technology in high schools.
