A couple wakes each day to a different time period in their lives, testing their relationship to its limits.

Greek-Cypriot writer/director Kyros Papavassiliou’s second feature is an elegant, time-shifting puzzle that beautifully ruminates on our predetermined fates. Penelope (Maria Apostolakea) and Isidoros (Hristos Sougaris) exist in a universe where one day they can be young lovers, and the next older and divorced. Their relationship is stretched into new dimensions as their shared and individual recollections are in constant flux. However, somewhere next to their world is another where time is linear. It is possible to break free from the world of arbitrary time? Penelope and Isidoris learn that this “freedom” comes with a cost.

“A very sophisticated film … every once in a while there’s a film that breaks the established ways of perceiving, and this is one of them.” (Karlovy Vary TV)
