Athens, 2004 summer Olympic Games. 11-year-old Misha arrives from Russia to live with his mother, Sofia. What he doesn’t know is that there is a father waiting for him there. While Greece is living the Olympic dream, Misha will get violently catapulted into the adult world, riding on the dark side of his favorite fairy tales.
“I found the Olympic Games context a very interesting background to set the story in. The 2004 era was just as innocent as Misha. What follows this period is something totally new and very tough for Greece, which is what Misha also faces when he arrives in Athens. Both Greece and the young protagonist live in an illusion, an illusion that will come to an end very soon. Setting the story during the Olympic Games is just a metaphor for the end of illusions, the end of childhood and fairy tales, and their replacement with a coming of age, whatever this may bring."
