In the midst of a pandemic which leads to memory loss, a man takes part in a test programme for a new treatment. An intelligent and at the same time funny allegory about memory, identity and loss. Aris, a loner in his late 30s, falls victim to a worldwide wave of amnesia and takes part in an experimental recovery programme. He has to carry out predetermined tasks and take Polaroid photos of himself while doing so. The aim is to create new memories and finally a new identity. During the treatment he meets a woman who is undergoing similar therapy. The first buds of their relationship cause Aris to set a new course for his life.


CHRISTOS NIKOU (*1984) studied Film Direction and Screenplay Writing in Athens. His career began in 2008 as assistant director on numerous TV and film productions, including working under Yorgos Lanthimos. After his short Km (2012), Apples is his full-length feature debut and opened the section Orizzonti at this year's Venice Film Festival.
