    Documentary, Experimental

    Exhausted by the crisis, a young Athenian tries a new start on Lemnos, an eroded island, arid and militarized, lost in the middle of the Aegean Sea. There he finds himself caught between two tragic plots haunting the territory: one from the past – the betrayal of the Argonaut Filoktitis, the other from the future – the dystopian war of the video game Altis.
