Greek Director Probes Deeper Issues in Berlin Festival Film ‘Sargasso Sea’
After a sudden suicide turns a small eel-farming town upside down, an investigation unearths troubling secrets about the town’s past. Those discoveries will bring together two women trapped in solitary lives, offering each a chance to find salvation.
