Event Details

A tragic incident on Greece's northern border strikes a local family of three, pushing them to face their own personal impasses, while having to deeply consider the price for their actions.

Stergios is middle-aged fisherman and farmer living with his wife, Maria, and their daughter, Anastasia, in a lakeside Greek village on the border with North Macedonia.

Stergios is afraid of going to jail for a fraud he had committed many years ago.

He starts to traffic migrants across the border lake in order to repay the money he took, but soon finds himself trapped in a deadly game between the local mafia and his conscience, while his family starts falling apart.
