Arriving home exhausted from work in the early morning hours, hangdog cop Vasilis appears alienated in his interactions with both his wife and daughter. By contrast, happy-go-lucky 16-year-old skate rat Harry bounces from crash pad to skate park to his father's home, although it's clear he and his father don't see eye to eye. Following the two characters' separate story lines in parallel over the course of the next day and night, their stories eventually intersect in a surprising and tragic way. Argyris Papadimitropoulos and Jan Vogel's debut feature has a ripped-from-the-headlines urgency reflecting generational tensions in contemporary Greek society. Opening Night Film, 2011 Rotterdam Film Festival.
