SYNOPSIS

In a destroyed and abandoned city, a woman travels alone. She wants to pass the Forbidden Zone and get to the Sea. Deceptive traps lurk everywhere and the Morning Patrol is on her trail. The city’s mechanisms work uncontrollably. Electronic voices warn the nonexistent citizens to desert the city. A man, one of the few survivors, who now guards this city, suddenly appears. They will approach each other; they will try to recall the past. A relationship of violence and death, a story of love in an unbearable world.

The film will be screened in a newly restored digital copy with English subtitles, created in 2020 by the heirs of Nikos Nikolaidis and is part of the “Motherland, I See You” initiative.
