Theseus Street

Written by

Stefanos is a young programmer in a large IT company. He lives in a completely rational world, believing there is an explanation for everything in life. Suddenly, into his daily routine there comes a woman, Eleni. The “Stefanos” system starts to come unravelled, love rocks his mechanical view of his universe, yet resistance to change is still strong. At some point, however, the unexpected happens: Eleni disappears in mysterious circumstances.

The absence of his love leads Stefanos to a dark search, in which he realises that the methods he has learnt to use thus far are not enough for him. Yet can a man go against his own nature?
