"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Poet Mary Oliver

Greek-Australian independent filmmaker Bill Mousoulis shoots his first feature film on European soil - a story of personal and public politics, ambitiously produced in two countries with very little money in an improvised documentary style.

An Italian cinematographer, Guilio (Alessandro Figurelli) finds himself in the middle of the Greek socio-political crisis. He returns home to Milano to his ex-wife, Irene (Emanuela Zocco), and daughter, Andrea (Ilaria Andrea Malaraggia), only to be drawn back to Athens and hired by an Australian TV producer, Sophie (Jennifer Levy).

« I always make fiction films but my style is realistic, and I like to blur the line between fiction and reality. So, even with the actors themselves, they play fictional characters, but characters that are quite similar to their real selves. » Bill Mousoulis

Η πρώτη ταινία μεγάλου μήκους του Ελληνοαυστραλού παραγωγού Βασίλη Μουσούλη, η οποία γυρίστηκε στην Ευρώπη. Στην ταινία του ο Μουσούλης παρακολουθεί τον Ιταλό φωτογράφο Guilio ο οποίος βρίσκεται στην Αθήνα κατά τη διάρκεια της  οικονομικό-πολιτικής κρίσης.
