Constantine Giannaris Τribute

A Place in the Sun / Constantine Giannaris

Athens, gateway to the West and, in the wake of the collapse of Eastern bloc communism, another train arrives carrying economic refugees. Amongst the flood of desperate poor is Panayotis, 18, Albanian and ambitious. Cruising the neon lit streets is Ilias, 35, handsome and solitary, looking for someone to distract him from the emptiness of his life. Against the chaotic backdrop of the modern city, these two characters are separated by race and bound by love, murder and their desperation to find their own place in the sun.
