A Place Called Home (2013)
Coming home to make amends with her estranged father, Eleni finds herself confronted with an unexpected kinship.
- Eleni Karapanos (Myrto Alikaki), professor of cardiology in London has been estranged from her father Kyriakos (Elias Logothetis) for over fifteen years now, ever since defying his wishes she left Greece to relocate to the UK. Kyriakos who had been a refugee child in Serbia after the war has never forgiven her for leaving her country. One day, Eleni's husband Harris (John Bicknell) loses his job in a big corporation and is posted to China indefinitely. The prospect of a new uprooting prompts Eleni to make a return trip to her homeland. Before embarking upon a distant journey, Eleni wants to bridge the distance between her and her father, but also give her daughter Anna (Iris Mitta) a home if she ever needs it. On a deeper level though what she really needs is to find a way back home herself. On the pretext of responding to one of her fathers calls she takes Anna and comes to Greece, for Easter holiday. But when she reaches home nothing she finds is as she expects. A Serbian woman, Nina (Mirjanna Karanovic), is living with Kyriakos, looking after his big estate. Kyriakos has been harbouring a few secrets of his own.
