Vouta (2020, 18′)
Christos, a teenager in a disadvantaged neighbourhood of Athens has to deal with his father’s return from jail.

Vouta is a story from the dirty part of our cities. According to statistics unemployment, poverty, addictions, violence and mental health issues make a high risk family, associated with child abuse and neglect.
In Vouta we are trying to understand how a kid grows in this environment and discover what else is lying behind the closed doors. Is there any trace of hope or love before the institutions take action?
