Andreas Thomopoulos wrote and directed this downbeat Greek film set in the imaginary, fading European city of Aldevaran, where a poet named Dimitris (Dimitris Fininis) shares a flat with Magdalena (Eleni Maniati) and Chris (Dimitris Poulikakos), a musician who performs with him at a coffee shop. One day Dimitris learns that he is going to die in two months, and wanders the streets of the city, which seems to be dying along with him. Despina Tomazani and Manolis Loyadis co-star.
