Green Sea

Available in the US, except NY

ANNA has lost her memory, but she hasn’t forgotten how to cook. One night she appears in a working class neighborhood by a Greek harbor. There she meets the unpredictable loner ROULA and finds work and hospitality at his humble tavern. In the kitchen, amidst the scents of spices, and old forgotten recipes, she struggles to reconstruct her past. Her simple but delicious food awakens memories for the regulars who in turn help her to reconnect with herself. The story then takes an unexpected turn when Roula suddenly stumbles upon the GREEN SEA, and discovers Anna’s true identity.
