Elissavet Chronopoulou, "A SONG IS NOT ENOUGH"

Four people, in a period both politically and socially demanding. The early seventies in Greece during the military dictatorship. One child and three adults. They are called to respond to the task that the times set upon them, while at the same time remaining loyal to the strong bonds of love that tie them together. Friendship, love, motherhood, fatherhood. Inside them, basic values collide. They doubt, they resist, they lose heart, they get confused. On a tight rope they balance, sometimes at a loss, sometimes with determination. Often they fall. The only, ever, fixed mark, is how much they love and how much they hurt each other. Each era sets its own historical demands. To what extent can we respond to these without setting aside the demands of our personal life? How can we prove ourselves "worthy of the times" and at the same time worthy of love?
