Ambitious police captain Elisabeth (Angeliki Papoulia) is drowning in drink and the mundane small-town community where she was forcibly transferred. Rita (Youla Boudali) guts eels for a living whilst attempting to fade into the background, unlike her flamboyant, nightclub-owning brother. But a mysterious death soon upends both their lives and the community, forcing the two women together. Featuring an incendiary performance from Papoulia, in a script co-written by Boudali, this taut thriller intricately weaves both the mystery and the mysterious. SE
