DESCRIPTION
A short film written & directed by Manolis Mavris.
Synopsis: 30-year-old Liam, pervaded by a feeling of childhood nostalgia takes a trip in time, in his phobias and memories, to find his true identity and his utopian past. The final destination of his coach journey is an imaginary mountain, the top of which represents his early years. The passengers who visit him whilst in the train of memories are key characters from his life who have played a determining role in shaping his personality. The train is a non-place, where reality meets fiction. This is a trip towards Liam's unreachable goal, ending in him embracing himself and his past.
