Manos and Evdokia came to Kythira at different times. The couple left Athens for different reasons. Soon after their arrival, the island with its ways, grew on them. They became part of the micro-cosmos of this magical place, which floats on the border of the Aegean and Ionian Seas.


Kithira is a very active yet remote little island with a new hospital, an airport, beautiful beaches, ancient ruins, and active trekking and paintball clubs. Evdokia works as a school teacher and Manos works as a civil engineer.


Both of them take life as it comes and are not afraid to try new things. Evdokia and Manos are part of a growing trend of young people questioning the values of our consumerist society and look for a more simple and meaningful way of life.

Coming from a small Polish town, she found Canada too provincial!! Prefers the hustle and bustle of New York. Don't we all. Lovely piece of personal film-making.
