Alec Fenton, an American by adoption and his wife Marjorie, an American of Greek origin, live with their two children in Athens. Both Alec’s business life and his tender relationship with his daughter, are guided by a playful but deeply felt need to interpret the smallest details of the world as significant. Under the influence of powerful signs and premonitions, Alec allows himself to veer in and out of a love affair with a colleague Katherine (Deborah Kara Unger), eventually leaving his family and returning in America with his lover. Once there however, the same belief system urges him back home for one final attempt to win back his family. His quest, however, is endangered by the presence of political activist Andreas (Dimitris Katalifos) in his family’s life. Andreas becomes the victim of a series of incidents, each one more threatening than the last. Could it be an unleashing of signs… ?


I never imagined that some day I’d want to work with a composer and orchestrate images. I’ve always detested Hollywood’s contrivances with their gratuitous emotional overkill. I enjoyed working with Adrian Utley because we share the same outlook. He, too, is against film scores! It was a crucial exchange for both of us. He had to come to Athens, on location, to absorb the atmosphere and the actors’ vibes, the whole world we were creating. We were friends before the question of music was even raised.
