When a deaf teenage girl is forced to leave her progressive Athens school and return to the island where her father lives, she is confronted by the dangers brought on by prejudice and intolerance. Her own failure to adjust to the world of the hearing adds to the difficulties she faces. When the stability of her family is threatened and her personal relationships are in shambles, she begins the difficult task of facing the truth and ending self delusions that will lead her to forgiveness and reconciliation.

Hellenic Film Academy Award nomination – Best Supporting Actor (Giorgos Pyrpasopoulos).

A small squatter community of dancers, tramps, petty thieves, and a pet monkey establish a household in Broadway, an abandoned entertainment complex in Athens. The balance of their makeshift family is upset when a former member of the group, wanted dead by the city’s most dangerous mafioso, is released from prison and returns to Broadway. Recommended for mature audiences.
