SYNOPSIS

In Dimitri’s high school, Vassilis and his friends, a gang of bullies, terrorize him. When he learns that it’s his turn to say the morning prayer in front of the entire school, Vassilis becomes the only thing he can think about. But, what’s going to happen when the time comes and he stands in front of the whole school and mainly in front of him?   While seeking their identity, through violence, they will inevitably test each other’s boundaries.

ΣΥΝΟΨΗ

(GR) Στο Γυμνάσιο του Δημήτρη, ο Βασίλης με την παρέα του, μια ομάδα νταήδων, του προκαλούν τρόμο. Όταν μαθαίνει ότι πρέπει να πει την πρωινή προσευχή, ο Βασίλης καταλαμβάνει όλη του τη σκέψη. Τι θα γίνει όμως όταν θα φτάσει η μέρα να σταθεί μπροστά σε όλο το σχολείο και κυρίως μπροστά σ’ αυτόν; Αναζητώντας την ταυτότητά τους, μέσα από τη βία, ο ένας θα παίξει με τα όρια του άλλου.       *ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗ | Ταινία μικρού μήκους | Σκηνοθεσία: Θανάσης Νεοφώτιστος
