Back to Life

Athens, Holy Saturday 2020, first lockdown, but also first day of freedom for a severely abused woman. The true story of 32-year-old “Suehir”, who managed to escape from her husband, with the help of another woman, and applied for asylum in Greece. We follow her from the morning, when her detention ends, to midnight, when she celebrates her “resurrection” with people of solidarity. We travel with her to her dark past, but also to her bright future. Her old wounds are revealed, but so are her new joys. Pain gives place to strength, and fear turns to hope. But what about her daughter?
