Now available on Vitamine Cineville

Feature film, written by Youla Boudali & Syllas Tzoumerkas and directed by Syllas Tzoumerkas

As the frightening facts of a mysterious suicide case unfold, two women, a murder  suspect and the law enforcer discover between them a striking similarity: contempt for their lives so far and a new relentless desire to start over. In a senseless and bland world they don’t feel like abiding the law.
