Grey skies. Farmland. Old depots. An empty station.
A train arrives to the platform. No one exits, except
for Antigone, a young woman in her 30ćs. This is Th.,a small Greek town, the place Antigone decides to move back to after many years of absence.
Antigone is determined to settle in. She goes to the
local bar for a drink; she meets friends from the old
times; she takes a job as an English teacher; she even finds a boyfriend, Nikos, young, good-looking and naive – the simpler, the better...
Antigone’s search for an unassuming life in Th. soon
turns out to be slightly more complicated than
she thought. Life in the streets of Th. is quiet but
underneath violence, discrimination and a collective, unspoken rule of silence reign. Soon, Antigone will start wondering if she can just stand aside and watch or if she should take action.
A film about the aesthetics of indifference, violence
and involvement. A meta-western.
