Elias Demourtzidis, a Greek expatriate,
is a survivor of the Greek Civil War and a period in history that most
Greeks would prefer to forget.
Ironically, Elias has been diagnosed
with the degenerative brain disease Alzheimer’s.
However, the disease is eroding his
more recent memories first, leaving his mind to wander back in a time of
war, civil unrest and unresolved family tragedy.
'Istoria' follows the journey of Elias,
his son and grandson as they return to Greece for the last time to
explore this troubled past and possibly even find a sense of closure for
This reconnection with the village and
the past could ultimately end in reconciliation or tragedy for Elias.
