    Subject

    "The journey of a man (Harvey keitel) in the modern-day Balkans. The balkans of fanatical conflicts and war. A journey that is also a quest. The pretext for this odyssey of a modern Ulysses : the search for reels of a short film from the beginning of the century, never developed, directed by the brothers Yannakis and Miltos Manakis, film pioneers in Greece and the Balkans. The quest for a lost gaze and a lost innocence !"
