A young woman discovers her grandmother´s mountain village, which she fled during the Greek Civil War. There, she faces ruins and oblivion. The summer brings her back to the village, along with a feeling of imminent change.
An outdated popular song ends in serenity. The snow-covered town remains quiet until the dogs start barking for dinner. Smoke comes out from chimneys and the title of the film appears. This film is about the history, the past, and present of a pastoral town in Northern Greece. Apparently, it is a story about a Serbian filmmaker visiting her grandmother’s hometown. However, it is essentially a story about the nation and the world. Patriarchal economy and ideas turned the town into a ski resort or a ruin. Even woods and weather were never apolitical. One woman slowly walks past the current inhabitants of the town, who still do some manual work in an old-fashioned way, as if they were trying to remember the old times. Planting a tree, she talks about hope. She urges the history of women, which was passed down through generations like a lullaby, to wake and arise from a long sleep. In front of the camera, she makes a poetic declaration just like all the old women who dared to resist. (Sung MOON)
