Seven different stories about love in modern Greece, by people who seek it, find it, lose it.

Director’s statement

Purgatory. The title is reminiscent of the Middle Ages. It evokes souls, torture, eternal death or eternal redemption. How far away and yet how close to our time. A time of pandemic and disintegration of the social fabric. The film, through these seven stories that are somehow connected, tries to show this madness that prevails nowadays, but with one constant: love. It is this love that all the heroes of the stories seek, as a refuge. And even if it is not given to them or does not really belong to them, they grab it like a thirsty in the desert grabs a bottle for the last drop of water.
