ZEUS - POSTER

 

SYNOPSIS

The sudden death of his father urges ZEUS (20), now head of the family, to organize a decent funeral. Zeus decides to contact his older half-brother VASSIL (38), a former criminal, who left the family years ago, because of a severe argument with his father. Vassil has no feelings left for his father and also no intentions to help his younger brother, who desperately is looking for money. Finally he agrees to help Zeus, but on the road they get stopped by a police officer.
