The Eighties in Athens. A 9 year-old girl is at the center of this story. The girl has a communist and hyperactive father who keeps a bust of Lenin on his desk. It’s the Eighties: Freddy Krueger is in the VHS. The girl has an older sister. And lives in the Eighties, with Eighties stuff. Communism hasn’t fallen, but it will. And the connection –or rather, the remix– Krueger-Lenin is one of the many delights in this short with a huge Eighties-pop heart that wisely places politics as yet another threat on the way of family relations and the pains of growing up.
