Film Synopsis

This film is about my Italian mother and her confessions about life in Greece. Based on an interview that I did with her about motherhood, she talks to me about her arrival in post-dictatorship Athens in the 70’s, her struggle to adjust to the greek mentality, her memories and nostalgia of motherhood, but also her long lasting desire to move back to her small hometown in Italy.
