Nikos is a 30-something musician with no money, no ambition and not much of a future. This particular summer he's been tasked with looking after a large villa in the Athens suburbs while his wealthy and successful friend is on vacation. In between poolside cocktails and playing with the dog, Nikos conceives of the perfect ruse— to invite his ex-girlfriend Sofia over, and lock her in the house until she can tell him why they broke up.
Capturing the doldrums of summer and the dangerous nostalgia of lost love, Afterlov examines the anatomy of a relationship between two people who can't live with or without each other. Stergios Paschos' debut feature premiered at Locarno, São Paulo, Thessaloniki, where it won the Artistic Achievement Award; and Transilvania, where it won the FIPRESCI prize.
