Eleftherios Venizelos, one of Greece’s greatest statesmen, faces challenges that test his diplomatic and humanitarian skills during the critical decade from the Balkan Wars and World War I, up to the Asia Minor Catastrophe and the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne. His struggle is told through dramatized scenes, rare archival material, and expert interviews.


George Manias has operated a shoe shine shop for 76 years, since escaping the Nazi occupation of Crete at the age of 14. Today, at 91, he is haunted by the loss of his sister Angela as he struggles to decide whether to retire, and whether to visit Crete again without Angela by his side.
