Set against a backdrop of the German occupation of Athens in 1943, this taut drama introduces us to the Helianos family, whose life undergoes a profound change when their apartment is commandeered by an exacting German officer with a strict and inscrutable attitude. The officer, Captain Kalter (Richard Sammel, Inglorious Basterds), essentially treats the family as indentured servants, expecting them to cater to his every whim. While the father, to protect his family, falls into a habit of doing the Captain’s bidding without protest, his young son is altogether less acquiescent, and his wife and daughter display their own ambivalent feelings about their unexpected intruder. Survival instincts being what they are, the family soon establishes a routine of going about daily life as if things are normal. But when their unwanted guest abruptly leaves for Germany, then returns as suddenly as he left, things take a turn for the unexpected.... Winner: Young Italian Filmmaker Award, Rome Film Festival.

Associate Producer Sauro Falchi and Cinematographer Vladan Radovic are expected to attend both screenings.
