A love letter to the island of Crete.” MyFilm

The sun-soaked Cretan terrain and its inhabitants play a starring role in filmmaker Clio Fanouraki’s coming-of-middle-age allegory that uses the economic crisis as a springboard into a positive crisis of self.

Hotel manager Johnny (George Corraface) is a high flyer defined by his work … that is until the economy collapses, along with his job. Stuck at home, avoiding his family and mounting a pile of debt through online gambling, he’s forced to finally wake up to himself and head outside.

At sea with a crusty fisherman, picking grapes with the workers and getting charmed by a charismatic goat shepherd, Johnny finds a world that was always there, even if he couldn’t see it through his old eyes.

“Poses a back-to-land solution to Greece's economic crisis and boasts breathtaking cinematography, haunting, original music and mouthwatering food and wine.” MyFilm

Nominated for Best Feature Film at the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival 2017.


«Ξα μου», στο Κρητικό γλωσσάρι σημαίνει κάνω αυτό που πιστεύω, παίρνω την ευθύνη, είναι δικό μου θέμα τι θα κάνω, ή άσε το πάνω μου. Ο Τζόνυ ο οποίος απολύεται από το ξενοδοχείο όπου εργαζόταν αποφασίζει να ξαναβρεί τον εαυτό του και ξεναγείται σε αμπέλια, μαντριά και ψαροκάικα της Κρήτης ανακαλύπτοντας έτσι έναν κόσμο πραγματικό που ήταν εκεί, αλλά, όπως όλοι μας, δεν τον έβλεπε.
