Yiannis, a faded musician who is about to leave Cyprus for a better life abroad, sees his plans turned upside down when his dog runs away and crosses the Buffer Zone that separates the "Greek South" from the "Turkish North". Can he smuggle him back in?
Is it an invasion or a war? Or maybe a peace operation? Is a settler who was born in Cyprus a legitimate citizen or a "war crime"? And is a settler allowed to cross the line or not? Is it a border or is it the green line? Or is it a cease of fire line? Is it TRNC or a pseudo-state? Living stock is not allowed to cross from north to south, but what about flying birds? What about cats and reptiles? The insanity that all inhabitants of this island have to live with, the corruption on both sides, the emblematic occupation symbols, the inefficiency of guarding the cease of fire line, the secret crossings. All sides involved have been unable to change the fiasco created in Cyprus, thus the escape goat is Jimi, the dog. If you have never been to Cyprus, this is your chance! If you live on the island, this movie will be disturbing enough to make you realize how close to each other and how far we all live at the same time.
