“When I left my island, it wasn't a departure; it was an escape”. Efthymia Zymvragaki's documentary talks about violence against women from a dual perspective: the director's first-hand experience and the account of a perpetrator, whom she met. Memories, facts, and fiction intertwine in a story that is painfully personal and intrinsically cinematic.
