Angeliki Antoniou, "EDUART"

Based upon true events

Eduart, a young man raised in a cruel and oppressive family environment, leaves Albania with the dream of becoming a rock star and living a better life. His reckless character and the passions of his youth lead him to commit a murder in Athens.

Chased by everyone, even by his own self, he is imprisoned under the harshest conditions. Eduart, with the help of a German doctor, learns to feel sympathy for others and guilt for his crime. His deep remorse will lead him from darkness to light.

Like the Dostoevskian hero Raskolnikov, Eduart passes from crime to punishment, by daring to admit his guilt.

In international criminal history, the "Eduart case" occurs once in a hundred years.
