A man gets out of prison. Like a modern Ulysses he is fated to undertake a wandering journey into contemporary Athens, peopled by migrants, the homeless, and other marginalized persons. On his way he will follow a little girl and a woman. Who are these people? Does he know them? Are the three of them members of a disrupted family?
As the terrible secret of the man’s past unfolds we realise that in a violent and conflicted society, that the line between persecutor and victim is a fine one indeed…
