Storyline

Following a meltdown that leads to a suspension, professional golfer Zoe Papadopoulos travels to her grandparents' village in Greece to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined - against all odds - to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, Zoe rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer.

Fun, beautifully filmed, family film!!!
15 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice now and loved it both times! I had a smile on my face from start to finish. It's a charming film that you can bring the entire family to and you don't need to be Greek, or a golfer, to enjoy it. However, if you are Greek or a philhellene, you'll particularly enjoy the gorgeous Greek scenery and the authentic representation of Greek people. And, this is the first time I've seen a fusion of the Greek Orthodox Church and Nikos Kazantzakis philosophy working together in harmony to support the themes of the movie. Well done!!!!!!
