ANTONIS’ VOICE

by Christos Kapatos

synopsis

After an accident that almost cost him his life, Christos Kapatos decides to leave a successful career in shipping and moves back to his parents' house in 2011. At the same time, his father, Antonis, suffers a series of strokes that leave him with some minor kinetic but major speech disabilities. The only people who can understand him are his son and wife. In 2012, Christos starts recording his life in the house, trying to come to terms with this new model for cohabitation.
