About the film:
Greece: a modern tragedy is playing out. Driven by the crisis, Giorgos and Anna have left to try their luck abroad. But, like Ulysses, the ancient hero, the nostos, the return, haunts them. Dimitris has decided to return to his country. He has returned “in resistance” to defend his homeland. But is Greece still a country that one can return to?

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
