– Ne, tavęs bijau.

Running away from the past, middle-aged doctor Kostis (Makis Papadimitriou) find himself on a small Greek island. The winter there is dark, long and gloomy, as opposed to the summer, when the beaches are covered with young tanned bodies, and when the night is in, they turn the island into one endless party. Kostis falls in love with Anna (Alli Triggou), as beautiful as a goddess, and in no time he forgets his obligations as the doctor of the island. He gives into a desire so strong it soon becomes an obsession. Blinding sunlight and unbearable heat turns this drama into a psychological thriller.
Best Feature Award in Edinburgh International Film Festival, Golden Duke award in the International Competition Programme in Odessa International Film Festival.
