Christos Georgiou, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

In a short distance from the protests in central Athens, Margarita, a 16 years old girl, holds an orange in her hand and prepares to throw it at the crate of police, parked a few meters below. Inside the crate George, father of Margarita, is preparing to quench the cake for his birthday with other colleagues around him singing "Happy Birthday."

To protect her daughter from the riots and in order to give another chance to the relationship with her father, Sophia (mother of Margarita) sends George and Margarita in their cottage for a few days believing that no matter what will happen, it won’t be worse than the reality they already face.
