A Blast



83 min
Ten years after the economic collapse, no matter where she looks Maria’s world is crumbling. Unwilling to reconcile with a life of lost dignity and broken-down desire to live, Maria attacks. She attacks herself, her past, the people she loves, her country in a relentless battle. Set in the fervent years of the collapse of the Greek economy, A BLAST tells the story of a generation’s disillusionment and radicalization.
