"An intelligently rendered, gripping drama reflecting the wider issues of Greece's current financial crisis ... thoroughly enjoyable. **** " – CineVue

When her father disappears in the midst of Greece's financial meltdown, 14-year-old Myrto finds herself cast adrift in a riot-stricken Athens that she no longer recognises. Laying the blame for his absence on her father's business partner, Myrto kidnaps his eight-year-old son, triggering a citywide manhunt and her own gradual descent into madness.

Startling and timely, writer/director Thanos Anastopoulos' The Daughter showcases his fascination with the human cost of Greece's fiscal catastrophe. A noir-tinged psychological thriller with a hard social realist edge, Anastopolous' third feature shows us what the news reports cannot: an unsettling, enthralling portrait of the moral bankruptcy that comes when the money finally runs out.
