One Day in August / Constantine Giannaris

August in Athens. A time to escape. The summer is coming to an end. In the city center, the residents of a threestorey apartment building are preparing to get away for a few days. Through the eyes of a 17-year-old burglar who breaks into empty apartments, we catch a glimpse of the “dark side”, people’s hidden desires; we violate the secrets of the main characters and wait to see whether dreams become reality. Three apartments, three parallel stories, three takes on the daily life of a handful of people and the miracles they pray for.
