Family House

A Place Called Home directed by Maria Douza (Greece) 2013 explores the impact of historical events on a single Greek family.

Eleni, a successful physician and instructor at a London hospital, is married to a British banker whose only job option is in China after the failure of his UK firm.


Her father Kyriakos invites her to visit him in Northern Greece, hoping to convince her to support his plan to turn the family home into a hostel for immigrant children after his death.

When she arrives at the house, Eleni encounters a Serbian woman who’s taking care of her father. And she learns about the serious medical problems he’s been concealing from his daughter.
