Uranya / Costas Kapakas

Five teenagers are eager to discover love and the whole on top of that. In a small village, a group of young teenagers grow up with dreams, prejudices, secrets and lies.The summer of 1969 will mark their dreams... Urania is a very beautiful lady who lives just outside the village, next to the sea.They are bound together by a joint oath: to save some money so they can visit Urania and be initiated into the mystery of love.When faced with the great dilemma, to either buy the first black-and-white television set in order to watch the landing on the Moon or to visit Urania, the group of boys will fall out and Achilles will be left alone. Will they break their oath for Urania’s sake? Fortunately enough, the film’s deus ex machina knows his job very well...
