A Blast / Syllas Tzoumerkas

Maria is running away along the highway, alone in her roaring SUV. Behind her, fire and a case full of money. In front of her, the hopeless vastness of the motorway. Only a day before, she was a caring mother, a loving wife, a responsible daughter. Today she has gone rogue. A Blast premiered in competition at the Locarno IFF 2014.
