It's A Long Road

It's a Long Road

A film about three people who head towards a turning point in their lives. A Silver Coin on the Lips: At a dig in Philippi, Macedonia, an archaelogist discovers an un- looted tomb and inside it, the remains of an officer of the Hellenistic period. The event puts an end to his procrastination and the next day he sets off to look for the friends and army buddies of his 20 years old soldier son… The archaeologist’s solitary journey gives rise to reflections, in retrospect, as to the father-son relationship… The Last of the Lesser Whites: A group of young ornithologists go to Thrace on the Evros Delta to observe the migration of the last lesser white-fronted goose. The boat trip in the company of an elderly, peace-loving and gentle game warden who “speaks” the language of the birds is a tribute to the beauty of the Evros and to the relationship with nature… Vietnam: A middle-aged factory owner in the country is upset because his wife has taken the children and left him. After various futile attempts at finding company he ends up by going on a drinking spree at the Vietnam, a wild backwoods dive in the middle of nowhere. Without much ado he starts breaking everything: plates, glasses, crockery…
