First feature

Yiannis, is planning to leave crisis-ridden Cyprus for a better life abroad. His plans are put on hold when his dog Jimi runs away and crosses the UN buffer zone that divides the "Greek" from the "Turkish" side of the island. Since animal exchange between the two "sides" is prohibited, Yiannis reluctantly joins forces with Hasan, a Turkish settler, and characters to smuggle his best friend back. Through the simple story of a man who loses his dog, the film gives a vivid demonstration of how the fences we build can be broken down once we recognize the familiarity in the face of the unknown.
