    Director's Statement

    What happens when you realise that you’re running out of time? What is the most important for you when you are diagnosed with cancer? I used to be ignorant about cancer until a tumor knocked my door. The experience of spending few weeks in a cancer hospital in Athens made me to want to make this film. And it’s not a movie about pain and suffering but it’s about how to love and trust the other human beings. How to love and trust a stranger homeless let’s say…
