When a grave illness strikes down her father Paris, Artemis decides to return home to Greece after being away for a few years. Without expecting it, father and daughter embark on a journey into knowledge and revelation, which heralds a new beginning for their relationship.
In moon-like ebbs and flows, this moving Greek drama follows a father and daughter’s search for truth and reconciliation. The movement of bodies—both ailing and in bloom—and the filtering of memories through home-movie footage are divinatory tools to uncover the dynamics of a filial relationship.
