Storyline

The gods don't like humans forcing the hand of fate. When Jo turns up in Greece with her sons even though she knows that the festival she founded has been cancelled because of the recession, when she squats a house because accommodation is no longer provided for her, when she forces the mayor to put on a "little" show all the same, the gods punish her: her sons sulk, the show degenerates and her grandson sleeps with a village girl. They are all hounded out and it's the end of a period in her life that she was clinging to. Written by AGAT Films & Cie
