“So the idea is the following: while we were together we never went on a proper holiday. Long weekends at disgusting campsites where our asses hurt, and that was it. Hippie style. We never chilled at some nice place for a week. Cool and nice. Why? Because we had no money. We still don’t have, by the way. But there’s a house. A nice house. So I call her up and say: hey, Sofia. I know you’ll be spending your summer alone in Athens. Okay, maybe not alone, but still you’ll be in Athens. So instead of the vacation we never enjoyed, wanna come hang for a week in a terrific super-duper crib? Huh? Yeah, I’ll tell you all about it. Of – of course, as friends, Sofia!”
One year after their break-up, Nikos locks Sofia up in the basement of a studio, determined not to let her out until he understands exactly why they broke up.

Love as a synonym for madness (understood as total freedom), the guiding thread of a dazed comedy that loses control, but delightfully so.
Stergios Paschos was born in Velestino in 1985. He moved to Thessaloniki in 2003 in order to study agriculture at the Aristotle University, but instead, he attended creative writing seminars at Praksis School, and acting classes at the Theatrical Center of Northern Greece. In 2008, he moved to Athens, where he studied filmmaking in Athens Metropolitan College and took screen writing seminars with Nikos Panayotopoulos. He also worked as a second assistant director in the film KNIFER by Yannis Economides. He has written and directed six short films while his work has been supported by the national broadcaster. He has received multiple awards at Film Festivals and he has worked as a screenwriter and script editor in film and television.
