FRA/GRC/TUR | 2017 | dir. Tony Gatlif, with Daphné Patakia, Simon Abkarian, Maryne Cayon

Djam, a young Greek woman, is sent to Istanbul by her uncle Kakourgos, a former sailor and passionate fan of Rebetiko, on a mission to find a rare engine part for their boat. There she meets Avril, 19, who came from France to volunteer with refugees, ran out of money, and knows no one in Turkey. Generous, sassy, unpredictable and free, Djam takes Avril under her wing on the way to Mytilene – a journey made of music, encounters, sharing and hope.
