Yanni’s mum is on her way to audition for a role as Shakespeare’s Viola, when she discovers that her young son has been left home alone. An enthralling short captured in one breakneck shot, the film is told through a series of phone calls, as she fights to balance the most important roles of her life, while also walking in the most controversial area of central Athens—Patision Avenue.
