The Promotion (Exelixi)

It is 2012. Nikos lives in Athens. He is a film director who teaches film direction at the University of Thessaloniki. Today, he will ask his father, Mr. Andrikos, to accompany him to the swearing-in ceremony for his promotion at the University. A father-son train journey ensues, with time running backward.
