Storyline

Strangers in their own birthplace, 16-year-old Danny and 18-year-old Odysseus cross the entire country in search of their Greek father, after their Albanian mother passes away. Determined to force him to acknowledge paternity, little do they know that the road to the much-coveted Greek citizenship is paved with ghosts from the past, adult savagery and a dream that needs to come true, no matter what. Reaching the end of this initiatory journey they eventually come of age even if Greece refuses to follow. Written by Xenia

Drawn-out and Boring
17 September 2020 | by giamalakies-97913See all my reviews

This movie isn't good. The acting is laughably bad, especially by the main character. The runtime could have been cut in half, and the movie would likely have been better. Also, there are a couple of unnecessary cringy dance scenes (you'll know it when you see it). The whole bunny-related trope's meaning isn't really explained and it just leaves viewers confused. Further, there's a gun-related scene that makes very little sense (I won't mention specifics in order to avoid spoilers). In a nutshell, it fails to engage viewers, it has bad acting, and it's unnecessarily drawn-out.
