Panos Karkanevatos

rated for 0 + years
In mortal danger, Chryssa takes refugee children across the river Evros which separates Turkey from Greece. Their luggage is packed with drugs – the kids aren‘t old enough to be prosecuted and thus make ideal couriers for drug traffickers. One night, Yannis, a Greek soldier sees the people-smuggler and her illegal caravan. The two fall in love and begin a secret affair. But the masterminds of the smuggling ring are on their trail – notably Ivo, the father of Chryssa‘s child.
