Synopsis
Examines family relationships in the context of migration. Thanassakis, a 13-year-old boy, is staying with his grandparents in their Greek village in Epirus, while his parents are staying with his younger brother in Zurich. Shot through three periods - winter in the village, summer in the village - when the parents return for holidays - and Christmas in Zurich, to which the grandfather and the young boy were invited by the film-makers. The film is an attempt to understand the family relationships by following and filming moments of daily life to show their emotional family atmosphere.
