The story of a hero of our time. Antonis arrives at a hotel resort by the sea. It is wintertime, the hotel is closed and he drifts around alone. He has a lot of time to kill. Until television announces the disappearance of the famous TV host Antonis Paraskevas...
As director put is: “Antonis Paraskevas is a hero of our times, the kind who’s never actually performed any heroic deeds. He hasn’t slain any dragons, he hasn’t fought any wars — he can’t even fly! He is just your average Joe. Only difference is, this one was once worshipped. Antonis was the kind of guy everyone wanted to be, a by-product of the entertainment industry, our modern-day hero generator. (...) is a tragic kind of hero. His fate is pre-determined, his end is inevitable and there’s nothing he can do to change it.”
