Alexis is an explosive personality, passionate about life, humanity, nature, love and beauty. That is until the breakneck rhythm, intensity, stress and convolutions of career and economic success shatter him, alienating him from everyone and everything he loves: even his children and his soul mate Maria. Alexis is jolted back to reality when the unbridled greed of the multinational conglomerate his company is involved in causes an unprecedented ecological catastrophe costing many human lives. The multinational's Golden Boy suddenly realizes that he is nothing more than a cog in the machine he had fought so passionately against in his youth. He is determined to rediscover himself, to reclaim his soul, to rebuild the dream with Maria - but he is completely trapped.

Really describes the politics in Greece
13 November 2011 | by anastbetmirSee all my reviews

One of the best movies I have seen last year. It describes the politics in Greece. Not easily seen by everybody but someone that is interested in political aspects should see this movie. My opinion is that all Greeks should see it, at least once!

Unfortunately, there was not enough publicity for the movie so many people do not even know the existence of this movie, even though the casting is really good and many well known actors are part of it.

Except of the political aspect of the movie, it also has really nice pictures from Greece (Epirus and Santorini). Music is not special, but is suitable for the movie.
