A hypnotic, existentialist view of relationships – a man convinced that love does not exist.
Petros (Maximos Moumouris) is a desk-bound archaeologist regrouping after the disintegration of a long-term relationship. Consequently, his views of romance and love have been significantly coloured by his experiences, and not for the better.
Through the prism of a multicultural Athens, Petros’ disillusionment sees him cross paths with a diverse array of people of varying sexualities and cultural backgrounds: Husam (Nikos Gkelia), Laertes (Haris Fragkoulis) and Migen (Kora Kouvani) – second generation Albanian immigrants relying heavily on Petros to facilitate their big break; Daneel (Ieronimos Kaletsanos), a banker who sees only commodities, not people; and Michael (Vasilis Xenikakis), a police patrolman with a unconventional take on reality and imagination.
Can this unique melting pot of cultures and attitudes change his cynical view of love?
Through his sumptuous black & white lens, filmmaker Christos Voupouras offers an engaging treatise on love, sexuality, faith, relationships and migration that is sure to provide much conversational debate post-screening.

Ο Πέτρος, ένας αρχαιολόγος, προσπαθεί να ξαναβρεί τη ζωή του ύστερα από τη διάλυση ενός μακρόχρονου δεσμού. Η αποηγοήτευσή του τον φέρνει σε επαφή με διάφορους Αθηναίους, με διαφορετικές πεποιθήσεις και αρχές. Θα μπορέσει, άραγε, αυτή η πολύμορφη παρέα, να του αλλάξει την κυνική του στάση για τον έρωτα;
