Progressive and rigidbly idealist since his student years, he instills his values to his children.
The looting of his house by a gang will upset the family`s peace.Does the family have the power to heal the wounds and turn page?
Director's Note
When you become a father, you try to be careful and responsible. As your children understand the world, you become their protector and teacher. With your choices you create a steady and protected enviroment, with your actions you guide them to have values and confidence, to become civilised people.

When Kostas Stasinos was at his twenties he sudied agriculture to change the economy of his country. At his thirties he bacame the father of a little boy and he open an agricultural shop. Near forty years old, he had a daughter and bought a house with loan.
Now, at his fifties he is crowling in the floor, tied up, with a gag in his mouth, unable to protect his family from the extreme violence of four masked intruders.

All my films are about Athens and its people. But ten years ago we were living in paradise. Now that everything has changed and life here is a constant struggle, i feel that i am no longer allowed to beautify. The film is as cruel as our times. Even though the story has action, it is not an action movie. The faces, the eyes and the silence of the characters indicate the nostalgia for the lost ballance and humanity.
