The new film directed by and starring Christopher Papakaliatis is comprised of three narratives that connect as a single story in the end. Each follows the love between a foreigner and a Greek in a time of socio-economic turmoil.
WORLDS APART, which co-stars Academy Award winner J. .K. Simmons, is the year’s top grossing film in Greece.
A young opera singer suddenly and inexplicably loses her voice and takes refuge in her family’s abandoned country house to try to regain her stability. Instead, she finds herself retreating into a darker past as familiar ties break down.
