While shooting a documentary about “missing” civil servants a filmmaking duo stumble upon Charoula, a desperate, overprotective Greek mother searching for her missing civil servant son. But when his name is linked to government fraud with a foreign female accomplice, Charoula sets out her other, disabled son, Lefteris to clear his name. With the help of a Greek African taxi driver and a less than helpful antifa group of misfits, the documentary duo follow Charoula on her quest to find and bring him back home where he belongs, even if it means discovering who her son really is.

Critical text

Spiros Jacovides’ new film starts out as a documentary about ghost civil servants in Greece, but ends following the daily life of Haroula, Panos’ mother, a “disappeared” civil servant. While she refuses to believe that Panos has abandoned them, she keeps taking care of her other son, Lefteris, who suffers from a chronic illness and paraplegia. The mockumentary leads into a tragicomic search for Panos, addressing issues such as racism and xenophobia, while exploring the complex mother-son relationship. CLÁUDIA MALHEIROS CLÁUDIA MALHEIROS
