| The serene dream of today's turbulent Greece
It's a quirky comedy that could very well be a collective realising of the Greek people's hope and dreams. It's a film that is far removed from the dire climate of the nation's economical trials, set on an island of gambol and frolic.

South west of Samos in the Aegean sea, Icaria's island reputation is well known for its residents' long life expectancy. A carefree demeanor of this flirtatious community forms the essence of the fantasy utopia, Armenaki Island, where the film takes place.

There's a certain poignancy about the film that pays homage to the spirit of Greek culture as we laugh at ideas presented, then somehow lead us to critique our conventional Western customs, if just for a moment. The cinematography captures the beautiful landform of the island as we're taken through the unconventional customs of the community from which much of the comedy ignites.
