Plain of War


By Stathis Habibis


From Petroulas’ assassination to the signing of the memoranda, two generations of Greeks fight their own battles and struggle with their own demons. The fear of the policeman gives place to the despair of consumers’ lonely society. The censorship of barefaced fascist regimes turns into apathy and cynicism, while the political paradox is confirmed…It takes strength to stand peace…The heroes of ‘Plain of War’ strive in the past as well as in the present for freedom and democracy but, above all, they strive to remain human, setting their hearts on the society of the future.
