The story

In a Greek industrial town, social, racial and gender divisions give rise to hostility and distrust, gender divisions give rise to hostility and distrust, scene and two siblings’ antagonistic relationship. Two siblings, Sima and Isaac, live and work in a Greek industrial town neighbourhood mostly inhabited by Black-Sea Greek immigrants, which stands opposite an area inhabited by immigrants of varied backgrounds. The two communities never cross over to the other side – the only thing they have in common is the bridge Motorway 65 that runs between them. Social, racial and gender divisions give rise to hostility and distrust, reflected in the booming local amateur sports scene and the siblings’ antagonistic relationship.
